Down to just 140,000, Dan Shak shoved from the cutoff once action had folded to him. Phil Hellmuth called from the small blind and big blind Seiver squeezed to 440,000. Hellmuth folded and rolled his eyes as soon as he saw Seiver's hand.

Dan Shak: {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}
Scott Seiver: {J-Spades}{5-Diamonds}

The flop came {10-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{3-Clubs}, doing not much for anyone yet. The {A-Clubs} on the turn, however, did. Shak turned top pair but Seiver had a gutshot to the wheel.

"Shak needs to dodge a deuce to double up," the speaker said.

"Not the deuce...," Shak said.

But it was a deuce that hit. The {2-Clubs} completed the board and the crowd was in awe. Seiver started collecting the chips while Shak stood there in disbelief. He exited through the side exit. The tournament is now in the money. The remaining 20 players are guaranteed $166,666 from here on out.

Scott Seiver opened the hijack for 160,000 and Charlie Carrel called from the button. Seiver check-called 200,000 on {6-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{8-Spades} before checking again on the {9-Clubs} turn. Carrel bet 700,000 and Seiver tanked for a bit before announcing all in. Carrel said he had a value hand but, after some five minutes in the tank, he did fold. Seiver mucked.

Phil Galfond moved all in from under the gun for 1.42 million. The decision fell on Connor Drinan in the hijack who went into the tank.

He eventually folded before Chris Moore asked for a count again from the button. He then moved all in for around 2.7 million forcing, the blinds out.

Moore: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}
Galfond: {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

The board ran out {3-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{6-Clubs}{j-Hearts}, resulting in Moore spiking an ace on the flop and taking down the pot.

With Galfond departing, the tournament is one more elimination away from making the money.

Esfandiari Thanks Colman

[user139916] • Level 17: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Following the turn of a {Q-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{4-Spades} board with about 400,000 in the pot, Antonio Esfandiari checked from the big blind and Dan Coman bet 275,000 from the hijack. Esfandiari called to see the {10-Clubs} river and checked. Colman mulled it over for a bit before he checked and admitted it was "nitty."

Esfandiari tabled {K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} for a pair of queens, but Colman tabled {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds} for a pair of aces to win the pot.

"Thank you, Dan," said Esfandiari after the hand.

Carrel Doubles Through Shak

Webjoker • Level 17: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Charlie Carrel was first to act and raised to 175,000. His neighbor Dan Shak three-bet to 600,000 and the action quickly folded around to Carrel. The Brit announced all in for 1,460,000 and Shak called.

Charlie Carrel: {K-Diamonds}{K-Spades}
Dan Shak: {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}

The board ran out {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} and, despite picking up a ton of outs along the way, Shak had to part ways with the majority of his chips.
