Hand #16: Brian Rast had the button. Action folded to David Einhorn in the hijack seat and he raised to 800,000. Everyone folded and Einhorn won the pot.

Hand #17: Phil Hellmuth had the button and Seat 3. Richard Yong raised to 900,000 from early position and play folded Antonio Esfandiari in the small blind. He reraised to 2.5 million. Yong, who generally acts fairly quickly, took a couple moments and then called with 4.125 million behind.

The flop came down {8-Clubs}{4-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and Esfandiari requested a count on Yong's stack. After he received it, Esfandiari moved all in. Yong quickly folded and Esfandiari won the pot.
