Gary Benson: {X-}{X-} / {A-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{5-Clubs} / {X-}
Matt Grapenthien: {X-}{X-} / {3-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{2-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} / {X-}
Todd Brunson: {X-}{X-} / {6-Spades}{9-Spades}{5-Hearts}{A-Clubs} / {X-}

Benson led with a bet on fourth street, and then Matt Grapenthien called before Todd Brunson raised. Benson called all in for 7,000 total, and Grapenthien also called the raise.

On fifth and sixth streets, Grapenthien check-called bets from Brunson before everyone received seventh street face down. Grapenthien checked, and Brunson checked behind.

Brunson showed the {J-Spades}{4-Spades}{6-Diamonds} for a pair of sixes. Grapenthien mucked to give Brunson the side pot, and then Benson showed the {K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} before sweating his last card. Benson needed an ace, king, queen, jack, ten, or six to stay alive, but he pulled the {5-Diamonds} and made the only pair he couldn't win with.

With that, Brunson moved to nearly 600,000 in chips while the rest of the tournament fell to the bubble.
