Hand #148 - Shankar Pillai has the button, he raises to 180,000, Shak reraises to 735,000, and Pillai calls. The flop comes    , Shak moves all in for 1,575,000, and Pillai thinks for about four minutes before he quietly says, "I call." The once-silent crowd explodes in the excitement of an all-in situation. Shak shows    for a pair of eights, king kicker. But Pillai shows    for a pair of eights, *ace* kicker. Shak needs to improve to stay alive. The turn card is the  , and only a king can save Shak now. The river card is the  , and Shankar Pillai wins the pot -- and the bracelet -- with a pair of eights with an ace kicker. Beth Shak is eliminated in second place, earning $328,683.

Hand #140 - Shankar Pillai has the button in seat 8, he raises to 200,000, and Song calls all in from the big blind for 175,000. Pillai shows   , and Song shows   .

Hand #139 - Jason Song has the button in seat 5, he raises to 180,000, and Shak reraises from the big blind to 380,000. Her action was a little unclear, she apparently said something about raising to 380,000 before saying she moved all in. But the first verbal action is binding, so it's 200,000 more for Jason Song to call from the button. Song thinks for more than a minute before he calls. The flop comes    , Shak quickly moves all in, and Song folds. Beth Shak takes the pot.
