Mike Azzaro Eliminated in 4th Place ($52,488)
Jeremy Meacham opens to 150,000 under the gun, and Sean Thomson three-bets to 355,000 on the button. From the small blind, Mike Azzaro (pictured) moves all in for 1,145,000 total, and Meacham quickly folds out of the middle. Thomson calls, though, putting the long-standing chip leader at risk.
The flop provides the requisite sweat, as Thomson flops the only pair but Azzaro picks up nine outs to a flush. The turn adds three more outs for Azzaro with a gutshot straight draw, but he can not catch up. The river is the blank , sealing his elimination in fourth place.
Thomson is now the commanding chip leader with three players remaining.
Sean Thomson - 5,345,000 (89 bb)
Mike Azzaro - Eliminated
