Hand #8: The button was on Brian Rast in Seat 2. Bobby Baldwin raised to 1.1 million from under the gun. Everyone folded and he won the pot.

Hand #9: Phil Hellmuth had the button. Action moved to Richard Yong in early position and he raised to 800,000. Brian Rast reraised all in for 8.525 million from the cutoff seat and play folded back to Yong. He quickly gave it up and Rast won the pot.

Hand #10: Antonio Esfandiari started this hand with the button.

David Einhorn raised from early position to 800,000. Esfandiari called and the flop came down {K-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}. Einhorn bet 1.2 million and Esfandiari called to see the turn.

The {10-Hearts} landed on the turn and Einhorn was first up again. He checked and Esfandiari checked behind.

The {3-Spades} completed the board on the river and Einhorn checked with a visible swallow in his throat. Esfandiari checked behind.

Einhorn mucked his hand right away and due to World Series of Poker rules, Esfandiari had to show. He showed the {8-Diamonds}{8-Spades} and won the pot.
