Hand #3: Keven Stammen opened the cutoff to 27,000. It folded around to John Beauprez who three-bet to 61,000 from the big blind. Action was back on Stammen and he announced that he was all in for 308,000. The words barely left Stammen's lips before Beauprez announced call and jumped out of his chair.
Beauprez's pocket aces were crushing Stammen and Stammen found no help on the run out. Stammen became the first casualty of this final table and will take home $39,325 in prize money.
