Qinghai Pan Eliminated in 3rd Place ($25,190)


On the very next hand, Qinghai Pan moved all in from the button, and in the big blind, JC Tran woke up with [Kh][Ks]. Pan showed [Ah][10d], and his ace would never come, as the board ran down [9d][5s][2c][Qs][5c]. 

Tran, who at one point was down to less than half a big blind, is now heads up for the title, with his opponent Chris Kostoulas holding a 2.5-1 chip lead.
