Shaun Deeb raised to 850,000 from under the gun, and Stuart McMahen made the call from the cutoff. The action folded to Jerome Hickel in the big blind who three-bet the pot. Deeb called for his remaining 125,000. McMahen tanked and then folded for the cards to go on their backs.
Shaun Deeb: 8♠8♦3♥3♦
Jerome Hickel: K♠K♦9♣4♥
The flop came 10♦5♦5♠ to keep Hickel ahead.
The turn was the 8♥ for Deeb to hit a full house.
"That's a great card for you," Hickel commented.
The river completed the board with the K♥ for Hickel to hit the higher full house.
"Oh, but that's a great card for me," Hickel added while rapping the table as Deeb made his way out of the tournament area.
The final sixteen players racked up their chips and then made their way to their new seats on the final two tables.
Stuart McMahen was all-in for 2,350,000 against Shaun Deeb with the cards turned up.
Stuart McMahen: K♥Q♣J♣10♦
Shaun Deeb: A♥K♦6♥3♠
The flop of 6♠10♥J♥ gave McMahen top two pair and Broadway draws, while Deeb had flush and straight draws. The 5♦ turn changed nothing, while McMahen made a full house on the 10♣ river to double his stack.
The board read 5♦7♦6♣4♣A♥ with around 3,500,000 in the middle. Liran Betito had bet 3,600,000 from the big blind, and Michael Holmes was sitting in the hijack. He considered his options for a bit, counted out the remainder of his stack worth 3,650,000, and then opted to fold.
On the next hand, Kevin Rand raised it up to 400,000 from the cutoff and both Betito in the small blind and Clayton Fletcher in the blinds decided to call.
The flop came J♥4♥5♥, and both Betito and Fletcher checked. Rand continued with a bet of 325,000 for Betito to respond with a raise to 975,000. Fletcher snap-folded but Rand needed some more time before opting to fold too.
Brooks Beyer had just lost most of his chips as he doubled Jesse Yaginuma's 1,575,000 up as his queens couldn't hold and he found himself all in under the gun the very next hand for 625,000. Michael Holmes reraised to 1,250,000, pushing the rest of the players out of the hand and both hands were tabled.
Brooks Beyer: K♦Q♦10♥6♥
Michael Holmes: A♥Q♥J♠7♣
The 8♠7♠6♦ flop gave Beyer a pair of sixes, but he was behind to the pair of sevens of Holmes. The 8♦ hit the turn and the Q♠ landed on the river giving both players two pair, but Holmes eliminated Beyer with his queens and eights in 21st place.
