Bill Perkins - 3rd Place

Hand #59: Anthony Gregg limped in from the small blind, Chris Klodnicki checked his option, and the flop came down {7-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{2-Hearts}. Gregg checked to Klodnicki who bet 400,000. Gregg, though, check-raised to 1.3 million and forced Klodnicki out.

Hand #60: Anthony Gregg called on the button, Chris Klodnicki folded his small blind, and Bill Perkins shoved from the big blind for 5,350,000. Gregg called immediately.

Gregg: {A-Spades}{Q-Spades}
Perkins: {A-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}

The flop came down {9-Spades}{8-Hearts}{5-Clubs} to give Perkins the lead with a pair of fives. The {4-Spades} landed on the turn, giving Gregg additional outs to his queen with a flush draw. The {Q-Hearts} landed on the river, though, ending Perkins' run in third place.

Perkins cringed at the sight of his tournament-ending card. "I got rivered!" he said, before embracing with Klodnicki and Gregg.
