George Danzer

Connor Drinan opens to 55,000 from middle position and gets three callers, George Danzer, Mark Dube on the button and Prince of Docness in the big blind.

Docness checks the     flop and Drinan bets 140,000. Danzer calls and action is on Dube on the button.

Like he has numerous times at this final table, he takes his time to come to a decision, spending close to a minute and a half in the tank before putting out a pot sized raise to 792,000.

Docness shoots from his seat and when he returns he jokes, "I fold, but that was my play, obviously for not that much though." as he points to his 200,000 chip stack.

Drinan folds with much less theatrics and Danzer pears around the dealer to ask for a count and to see how much Dube has behind.

Dube's remaining stack is just over 250,000 and after another minute of thought, Danzer announces all-in, with Dube snap calling.

Danzer tables      for middle set while Dube throws over      for top set.

Danzer needs a low card on the turn to keep his low draw live but the   ends things and ends them fast, as Dube improves to quads to lock up what originally is thought to be a double up.

That is, until Danzer's stack is counted down, as Dube has him covered by close to 100,000, meaning George Danzer is eliminated in 8th place.

When the dust settles, Dube stacks up close to 2,500,000 and is now the commanding chip leader of Event #49 with just over 20 minutes remaining in Level 24.

The     flop brings three checks and Ji checks for a second time after the   falls on the turn. 

Drinan doesn't check though, announcing "pot" and pushing out 72,000. 

Yockey goes into the tank and after a few moments of thought, begins to cut out chips for a raise. 

288,000 gets slid into the middle and that bet sends Ji into the tank, who will more or less be all-in if he elects to call. 

He doesn't, folding before he heads to the rail to discuss the hand with his supporters. While he's in his conference, Drinan also folds, awarding the pot to Yockey. 

Yockey, who started this final table as the chip leader, is now back up and over the 1,000,000 chip mark, neck, neck and neck with Drinan and George Danzer who are also over that mark.
