Preston Lee
Preston Lee

Preston Lee limped in on the button and William Kakon raised to 25,000. Lee called.

They both checked through the {6-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{3-Hearts} on the flop to the {2-Hearts} on the turn. Kakon shoved and Lee called.

William Kakon: {10-Spades}{9-Clubs}
Preston Lee: {5-Hearts}{4-Hearts}

Kakon had flopped top pair and Lee had turned the straight. The {a-Clubs} on the river didn't mean anything to Kakon anymore as he was sent to the payout desk to collect his min-cash. Lee will be back tomorrow with 656,000 in chips.

Lakhov Putting Up a Fight

• Level 27: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Alexander Lakhov has won a couple of hands on the bounce. In the first, he three-bet all-in versus James Worth's 25,000 button raise and took it down.

The second saw the Russian open to 23,000 and Worth called. The flop came down {j-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{10-Clubs} and both players checked. It was the same on the {5-Hearts} turn but on the river, after Worth checked once more, Lakhov set 38,000 over the line and Worth passed.

Royce Matheson shoved all in from the button and Steven Wolansky called.

Steven Wolansky: {k-Hearts}{3-Hearts}
Royce Matheson: {8-Hearts}{7-Spades}

The board ran out {6-Spades}{3-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{10-Hearts}, they both flopped a pair but Matheson's pair of eights had the better of Wolansky. The turn and the river bricked for him and Matheson was the one to be allowed to bag his chips for the final table tomorrow.

Phil Hellmuth Out in Third

• Level 26: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante
Phil Hellmuth
Phil Hellmuth

In the fourth all-in versus James Worth, Phil Hellmuth has come unstuck once more and this time it sent him to the rail.

After opening the button to 22,000, Worth moved all-in and Hellmuth called off the rest of his stack.

James Worth {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}
Phil Hellmuth {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}

It was off to the races as the pair went heads up to the flop and it came down {9-Clubs}{k-Spades}{2-Diamonds}. Hellmuth was still looking for a queen or an ace to stay in the game but he couldn't find either on the {k-Hearts} turn or {j-Hearts} river and he left in third place.
