James Park - 3rd Place
James Park - 3rd Place

Hand #146: James Park called from the small blind, Josh Pollock checked his option and the flop fell {7-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}. Park bet 50,000, Pollock called and the {3-Spades} turned. Park slowed down with a check and Pollock did the same. Action repeated itself on the {8-Hearts} river and Pollock showed {7-}{5-}{4-}{4-} for sevens and threes, which was good enough to win.

Hand #147: James Park opened for 80,000 from the button and Noah Schwartz defended from the big blind. Schwartz checked the {2-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{7-Spades} flop and Park bet 130,000. Schwartz then woke up with a check-raise to 350,000 and Park quickly folded.

Hand #148: Noah Schwartz raised to 100,000 from the small blind and won the pot.

Hand #150: James Park raised the pot (120,000) from the small blind and pushed Josh Pollock off the big blind.

Hand #151: Noah Schwartz got a walk in the big blind.

Hand #152: Noah Schwartz made it 120,000 from the small blind only to have James Park raise the pot. Schwartz three-bet it and Park called off.

Park: {q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{q-Spades}{3-Hearts}
Schwartz: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{k-Hearts}

Park got it in with a pair of queens but was behind Schwartz's kings. The {a-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} flop paired Schwartz's ace and kept him in the lead. The {k-Spades} turn improved Schwartz to a set and left Park in need of either a jack or club on the river, but the {10-Spades} was no help. Park was eliminated in third place for $108,090.

KT Park Eliminated in 4th Place ($78,532)

KT Park - 4th Place
KT Park - 4th Place

Hand #131: James Park raised to 80,000 on the button and Josh Pollock called from the small blind. Noah Schwartz came along from the big and three players saw a flop of {k-Hearts}{4-Spades}{10-Hearts}. All three players checked to see the {9-Spades} turn and Pollock checked. Schwartz bet just over 200,000, James raised the pot, Pollock folded and Schwartz three-bet it. James called off and as it turned out was freerolling.

James: {k-Clubs}{j-Spades}{q-Spades}{4-Hearts}
Schwartz: {j-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{3-Hearts}

Unfortunately for James, his freeroll wouldn't come in as the useless {6-Clubs} peeled off. Chop it up.

Hand #132: Noah Schwartz raised to 120,000 from the small blind and won the pot.

Hand #133: KT Park made it 120,000 to go from the small blind only to have James Park three-bet the pot. KT got his short stack in and the cards were tabled.

KT: {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}
James: {10-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}

James was ahead with sevens, though he improved to a pair of tens on the {10-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{8-Clubs} flop. KT picked up a gutshot straight draw to go with his threes and overs, but neither the {6-Spades} turn nor {8-Hearts} river would deliver him salvation. With that, KT Park shook hands with the remaining players and then exited the tournament in fourth place.

Shawn Silber Eliminated in 5th Place ($57,974)

Shawn Silber - 5th Place.
Shawn Silber - 5th Place.

Hand #130: Shawn Silber raised to 140,000. Josh Pollock put Silber all in, and Silber called.

Silber: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}
Pollock: {q-Spades}{6-Hearts}{k-Spades}{7-Clubs}

The flop came {4-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{9-Clubs}, keeping Silber's aces in the lead but giving Pollock a gutshot straight draw. An {8-Clubs} turn added more outs to Pollock's hand, as now either a five or a ten would make his straight. The river came a {5-Clubs}, and Silber's aces had been toppled, ending his run.
