Steve Wilkie raised to 125,000 from early position and Derrick Fish three-bet jammed for around 280,000 two spots over. Action folded back to Wilkie and he made the call.

Derrick Fish: {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
Steve Wilkie: {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}

Fish was looking for some help, most immediately an ace, but he was left wanting as the board ran out a lowly {5-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}.

Pat Steele: {10-}{10-}

A monster pot just went down between two of the biggest stacks in the room.

There was roughly 230,000 already in the pot and a flop of {8-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} when action exploded between Day 1a chip leader Kevin Berthelsen and Day 1b chip Ryan Dodson. The former wound up all in for 1.35 million and the hands were turned up.

Kevin Berthelsen: {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}
Ryan Dodson: {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}

Dodson had flopped two pair to pull ahead of the aces, but his lead was shortlived as the {a-Clubs} spiked on the turn to give Berthelsen a set. Dodson was drawing dead headed to the {8-Clubs} river and was left with 250,000. He went bust a short time later in 14th place.

Ryan Phan moved all in for roughly 250,000 under the gun and he cleared the field all the way to Jason Reisdorfer, who paused for a few beats before calling from the big blind.

Jason Reisdorfer: {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}
Ryan Phan: {a-Clubs}{10-Spades}

It was a flip but Phan needed to improve to stay alive. Unfortunately for the pro from Omaha, that proved easier said than done as the board ran out {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{k-Spades}{j-Clubs}.

Thomas Lynde moved all in for 420,000 under the gun and action folded around to Tom Sundling, who called from the big blind.

Thomas Lynde: {q-Hearts}{9-Hearts}
Tom Sundling: {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

The {4-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{4-Spades} flop gave Lynde a flush draw but he came up short when the {3-Diamonds} bricked on the turn followed by the {k-Spades} on the river.

"I'm not going to beat a flopped straight."

Those were the last words of Todd Bergeth, who tangled with MSPT champ Max Havlish and discovered the bad news on the turn.

There was already a good amount in the middle and a board reading {8-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} when Bergeth bluffed it and was called by Havlish, who tabled the nuts.

Todd Bergeth: {a-Hearts}{j-Spades}
Max Havlish: {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}

Indeed, Havlish had flopped the straight and Bergeth was drawing dead headed to the {9-Hearts} river.
