{X-}{X-} / {A-}{7-}{2-}
{X-}{X-} / {4-}{J-}{6-}

Lee Salem completed and David "Bakes" Baker called, then Salem bet fourth and Baker asked to see the stack of his opponent. Salem had 210,000 behind and they got it in after fifth.

Here is what they ended up with in showdown:

{10-}{4-} / {A-}{7-}{2-}
{3-}{2-} / {4-}{J-}{6-}

While Salem was ahead with a ten-seven, Baker had quite some outs to get there and immediately spiked the {A-} on sixth to leave his opponent drawing dead. "You made it?" Salem asked and Baker nodded. Salem exposed his {8-} and {J-} as final two cards and headed to the rail in third place for $179,216.

Hennigan will enter heads up with a solid lead, but it's far from over for Baker with plenty of big bets still in play. There are three minutes left in the current level, one more is scheduled and an additional level can be played after that to determine a champion.
