What ended up being the largest pot of the tournament thus far, started as a blind on blind situation.

James Frangoulidis raised to 27,000 out of the small blind. Andrew Lauer three-bet it to 73,000 from the big blind. Frangoulidis did not back down and four-bet it to 127,000. Lauer announced all in and was quickly called by Frangoulidis.

Frangoulidis who was the one at risk in a hand that was somewhat reminiscent of the famous 2010 Main Event hand between Joseph Cheong and Jonathan Duhamel, with the same pocket holdings.

James Frangoulidis {a-Spades}{7-Diamonds}
Andrew Lauer {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}.

But on this occasion the ace would come as the flop sent Frangoulidis into the lead when an ace came in the window {a-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{10-Spades} the turn was the {k-Spades} and the {3-Clubs} on the river did not help Lauer, who pounded his chips into his hands in anger as a huge portion of his stack was sent to double up the 354,000 of Frangoulidis.
