Scott Hall Eliminated in 7th Place ($76,390)

[user46392]
Great Scott
Our players definitely had some serious slurps of wake-up juice in the break, as it's all gone action-tastic.

Peter Rho opened for 105,000 in the cutoff, and it folded over to Scott Hall in the big blind, who made it 360,000. Rho made it 1,500,000 and in a flurry Hall called, or attempted to raise, all in for 1,430,000.

On their backs in a gigantic, chip lead deciding classic coinflip.

Hall: {A-Diamonds} {K-Clubs}
Rho: {Q-Clubs} {Q-Hearts}

"Ace or a king!" shouts a pro-Hall railer. Another one is more ambitious: "Ace-king!"

Nevertheless:

Board: {4-Spades} {3-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds} {3-Spades} -- and by this time Hall is drawing dead so the dealer doesn't bother with a river. Eventaully he deals the {10-Clubs}, just for the sake of completeness, but nobody is really watching.

Thus we lose Hall, and Peter Rho is our chip daddy on 3,800,000.
