On the second hand of play, Travis Pearson raised to 80,000 from the button. Chip leader, Chris "Genius28" Lee reraised from the small blind to 196,000. Action folded back to Pearson and he moved all in for 850,000. Lee made the call and the hands were tabled.

Lee: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}
Pearson: {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}

The flop came down {A-Spades}{9-Spades}{7-Diamonds} and Lee took the lead with a pair of aces. The turn was the {2-Spades}, which left Pearson drawing to only two tens. The river card was the {4-Spades} and that was it. Pearson had been eliminated by Lee and earned $101,258 for his third-place finish.
