Henrick Hecklen: / /
Phil Hellmuth: / — fold
Matt Grapenthien: / — fold
Todd Brunson: / /
Hecklen was all in on third street for 8,000. Hellmuth called, Grapenthien completed to 15,000, Brunson raised, and then Hellmuth folded. On fourth street, Brunson bet, and Grapenthien folded.
This left Brunson and his pair of tens up against the at-risk Hecklen, who had just ace high at the time. Although Hecklen paired up with sevens on sixth street, he was unable to find anything to help him beat Brunson's pair of tens on seventh, and he was eliminated in seventh place for just over $38,000.
