$1,110 South Dakota State Championship

Jeff Heiberg Eliminated in 12th Place ($7,340)

MikePatrick • Level 23: 20,000-30,000, 30,000 ante
Jeff Heiberg

Jeff Heiberg raised to 85,000 from under the gun, then call a three-bet to 260,000 from Alex Smith on the button.

On the {7-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} flop, Heiberg checked, Smith moved all in for about 300,000 more, and Smith called.

Jeff Heiberg: {a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Alex Smith: {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}

Smith's queens needed to fade Heiberg's flush draw and did just that as the dealer laid out the {6-Clubs} on the turn and the {9-Hearts} on the river.

Smith is now the first player over 2,000,000 chips, and he's well over at that, with a sizeable chip lead.
