Hand #76: Phil Hellmuth raised to 320,000 on the button, Sternberg three-bet shoved 3,300,000 from the small blind, Wolansky reshoved, and Hellmuth folded.

Alan Sternberg: {J-Clubs}{9-Clubs}
Steven Wolansky: {A-Clubs}{q-Hearts}

The flop was {3-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{7-Hearts} and Sternberg took the lead with a pair of jacks. The {Q-Clubs} on the turn swung the lead back to Wolansky and left Sternberg drawing to five outs.

"Nineball!" Sternberg's frantic supporters shouted.

Unfortunately for Sternberg and his rail, the river was the {K-Hearts} and Sternberg was eliminated. Phil Hellmuth walked over and shook his hand.

"You ran me over," Hellmuth complimented. Sternberg bowed out in third place and received $204,789.
