John Monnette completed and Todd Brunson tossed out a raise. Monnette flung a call to the middle and check-called bets on fourth and fifth.

Monnette opted to bet out on sixth, only to find Brunson push out a raise. Monnette called and then check-called yet another bet on seventh.

Brunson triumphantly tabled     for two pair: jacks and sevens. Monnette, however, showed     for a higher two pair and was able to scoop the pot from Brunson

Todd Brunson was the bring in and Adam Friedman completed. Brunson called and continued to call bets on both fourth and fifth street. On sixth, Brunson took to betting and was Friedman called. Both players checked seventh and Friedman turned up     to couple with the   he had showing, giving him trip tens and enough to scoop the pot.

The next hand Brunson completed only to find Friedman raise. Brunson called that and once again bets on fourth and fifth. Brunson led out on sixth and seventh and Friedman mucked when Brunson showed a pair of eights for the high and an eighty-six for the low.

Friedman caught running jacks on fifth and sixth giving him aces and jacks, while Yakovenko failed to improve beyond his pair of nines, sending him home in 4th place.

Brunson bet on fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh, receiving a call from Monnette on each street. Brunson tabled     for kings up and Monnette shook his head and threw his hand toward the muck. Scooping this pot brings Brunson over the million chip mark.

Nikolai Yakovenko   /      /  

We caught up with the action on fifth street, where Monnette check-called a bet. Both players checked on sixth, and Monnette led out on seventh. Yakvenko tanked for half a minute or so, but finally called. Monnette opened up    .

"Wow," Yakovenko said, then tried to muck.

Monnette requested to see his hand, which made Yakovenko angry.

"Just this time," Yakovenko told him. "Take my chips."

Monnette obliged, allowing Yakovenko to muck.

The next two hands, Yakovenko was all in, and chopped.

Sven Arntzen - 5th Place.

Sven Arntzen   /      /  
Adam Friedman   /      /  

We caught up with the action on fourth street, where Friedman check-called a bet from Arntzen. Friedman then led out on fifth, sixth and seventh, and Arntzen called all three bets.

"It's time to get going," Arntzen sighed as he called on seventh.

Friedman turned over     for queens up, scooping the pot, and leaving Arntzen with just 5,000 in chips.

There was no bring in because Arntzen was all in with the ante, and Brunson folded. Friedman completed, and only Yakovenko called. Yakovenko check-called a bet on fourth street, the two checked on fifth, and Yakovenko led out on sixth. Friedman called. Both players knuckled on seventh, and Friedman turned over     for fives and fours. Yakovenko was forced to show his hand, but it was quickly mucked and we missed the contents, and Arntzen tabled     for no made hand.

He was eliminated in fifth place, and exited the main stage to a round of applause.

John Monnette pushed out a bet on fourth street and Sven Arntzen called. Both players checked fifth, but Monnette picked up the aggression by betting sixth and seventh. Monnette flipped up     for a seven-high straight and a seven low, which was enough to scoop the pot from Arntzen.

The next hand, Arntzen called bets from Adam Friedman on fourth, fifth, and sixth street. They both checked seventh and Friedman showed trip sevens. Arntzen could not beat that and had no low so he is now crippled, sitting on about 90,000.

It was ace-high and a seventy-six low, and when Yakovenko tabled    , he was awarded half of the pot for his pair of nines.
