Bobby Rooney, down to his last 100,000 or so, shipped all in from the button. Chad Holloway reraised all in, forcing a fold from Allan Kwong.

Rooney: {q-Hearts}{3-Hearts}
Holloway: {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

The flop brought little help for Rooney: {5-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}. An {a-Hearts} turn meant he had picked up a backdoor flush draw, and Holloway remarked that it's "never easy." Sure enough, the {4-Hearts} fell on the river and Rooney doubled up.

Shortly thereafter, Kwong raised all in from the small blind and Rooney instantly called off from the big blind. This time, Rooney was ahead.

Rooney: {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}
Kwong: {a-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

A {9-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{3-Spades} flop helped nobody, as did an {8-Diamonds} turn. On the river, heartbreak arrived for Rooney in the form of the {a-Clubs}, and he finished third for $33,903.

Holloway and Kwong are now heads up, with Holloway holding a sizable lead.
