Lawrence Uresti III and Jillian Singerman started at the same table and had a little extra incentive seeing each other across the table. Both are competing in the Onnit Labs Last Sticker Standing Contest, where the last player standing will pocket a cool $5,000.
Singerman recently busted, but Uresti III has had a tumultuous, yet solid day. He was off to a great start with more than 70,000, then found himself back to about the starting stack. He has since moved back to about the 70,000-chip mark, but we just recently watched him take a minor hit.
Picking up the action on an flop, Uresti III was faced with a bet of 1,150 from an opponent. He called to see the turn where his opponent bet again, this time for 2,300. Another call from Uresti III landed the river. Both players quickly checked and Uresti III tabled for a missed flush draw.
His opponent tabled to take down the pot, but Uresti III still has more than double his starting stack, currently sitting with about 62,000.
