LindaJohnson check-raised to 81,000, and the_snail03 shoved to put LindaJohnson all-in. LindaJohnson called with KsQd for the straight draw. The_snail03 showed TcTd for a set of tens.

Soon after, chickface’s AsKh would eliminate Shevmouse’s JdJh to eliminate Shevmouse in fifth place. Chickface would increase his chip stack to 950,000 chips with this elimination.
Later into the final table, fergwrx, a shortstack with 300,000 chips, shoved from under the gun and was called out of the big blind by chickface. Fergwrx’s As5s needed help against the TsTh of chickface. Unfortunately, the 6s6c4hQh7d board did not help fergwrx and he was knocked out in fourth place. Chickface extended his chip lead to 1.4 million chips. He increased it to over two million chips after getting it all-in against the_snail03’s Ad3c with his AsQs. A queen hit the flop and the_snail03 was gone in third place. Chickface held a two to one chip lead going into heads-up play.
