Mel Wiener Eliminated in 5th Place ($36,160)


The two chip leaders just tangled in the biggest pot of the tournament, and it was Sam Weiss who emerged victorious and took a dominating lead.

Catching the action on the turn of a board reading [Qc][Qd][6c][3h], Weiss fired 600,000. Wiener called, and the river was the [Js]. Weiss bet out again, 800,000 this time, and Wiener thought for about 90 seconds before sliding out a raise to two million. In a flash, Weiss announced all in, Wiener called, and the cards were tabled.

Wiener: '[As][Qh]
Weiss: [Qs][Jd]

The river brought a full house for Weiss, who sent a stunned Wiener to the rail in fifth place.
