Hugh Henderson - 7th Place

Hugh Henderson entered today's final day of play with the chip lead, but saw his momentum from Day 2 get stifled somewhat this afternoon and found himself battling with a short stack for much of the last couple of hours.

Finally he found it necessary to commit the last of his chips with {A-Hearts}{6-Hearts} and was in need of improvement against the {Q-Clubs}{Q-Hearts} of Daniel Weinman.

The flop came {J-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{K-Clubs}, and Henderson could no longer root for an ace but was now looking for one of the other two queens to give him a saving straight. Alas for Henderson, the turn was the {4-Spades} and river the {5-Hearts}, and Henderson's run ends in seventh place.

Meanwhile, Weinman has now jumped past Raymond Weaver and into the chip lead. After the hand, Kory Kilpatrick pointed at Weinman's stack sitting next to Weaver's and asked Weaver how he felt about Weinman having a bigger stack than his.

"What about him over there?" said Weaver, appearing to point across the table to James Kinney. Kinney — who actually has slipped down below a million and is now sixth of six — looked up in surprise.

"Hey... you making fun of my stack?" Kinney said, and the table laughed.
