Christopher Nash Eliminated in 4th Place ($47,990)


Christopher Nash got his short stack in preflop holding [Qh][Jh], and he was racing against the [3h][3d] of Sam Weiss. The flop of [Ah][2h][8d] brought Nash more outs with a flush draw, and the [10c] on the turn gave Nash even more outs.

However, the [10d] on the river wasn’t one of those outs, and Weiss scored another knockout to get us to three handed play.

The final three are starting to look at the numbers for a potential chop.

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.

Nash Doubles Through Weiss

Christopher Nash slow played pocket aces preflop, and it worked out perfectly for him, as he got his short stack on on a flop of [Qd][9d][6s] against the [Kc][Qc] of Sam Weiss. Nash was looking to avoid the bad beat, and he did just that, as two low cards completed the board.

Nash doubles up to over two million, while Weiss maintains his chip lead after that hit.
