Mantas Faces Resistance

Any thoughts Mantas Urbonas would be able to steamroll his table with his uber-stack have been squashed by early developments on Day 3.

He’s steadily lost chips today – most recently check-calling an 850,000 bet on the river of a [9c 5c 8d] [9h] [Qd] board versus Abdalah Fakhreddine – only to muck as his opponent showed him [Tc][Js] for the nut straight. A nice and crucial hand for Fakhreddine, who rises to 2.3 million but Urbonas won’t be happy with the early going – his stack now down to around 5.5 million – still a strong position but no longer as danger-proof as it once was.
