Hossein Ensan raised to 105,000 from the cutoff and Brandon Cantu three-bet to 280,000 from the big blind. Hossein made the call and the flop came {9-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{5-Spades}. Cantu continued for 210,000 and Hossein stuck around to see the turn.

As the {3-Diamonds} hit the turn, Cantu immediately announced all-in for 860,000 and Ensan called just as quickly. Cantu tabled {8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} but was behind Ensan's {5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}. The river brought the {k-Clubs} and Ensan's set of fives took down the largest pot of the day to give him the chip lead. Cantu was eliminated in 14th place on the first hand after the dinner break.
