Benjamin Pollak Eliminated in 5th Place ($115,100)

Jason Koon raised to 85,000 from the cutoff and Benjamin Pollak three-bet jammed from the button for what looked like about 650,000. Koon called to put Pollak at risk.

Koon: {A-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Pollak: {Q-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}

Koon had the preflop advantage and Pollak needed to improve in order to survive. The board ran out {K-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{4-Spades}{5-Spades} which paired Koon's ten but was no help to Pollak, so Koon took the pot to end Pollak's tournament.
