Perry: {x-}{x-} / {2-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{3-Spades}{j-Hearts} / {x-}
Pace: {x-}{x-} / {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{7-Spades} / {x-}
Lee: {x-}{x-} / {4-Hearts}{k-Spades}{2-Clubs}{10-Spades} / {x-}

Ralph Perry was down to his last 10,000 after the redraw, and those chips went in the middle on the first hand of the final two tables. Mack Lee and Randall Pace both made the call, and from there, Pace led out all the way until seventh street. Lee came along each time, and on seventh, both players.

Pace revealed {a-Hearts} {q-Clubs} {3-Clubs} in the hole for a pair of aces, and Lee wasn't able to beat that, as he mucked his hand. Perry was drawing very live, showing the {8-Spades}{4-Spades}. He could catch a low and/or a flush on seventh, but he squeezed his card, and showed the {k-Clubs}. That wouldn't get the job done, and he was eliminated in 16th place.

On the other table, Matusow was able to get a full triple up, when he made a low on sixth street, and a flush on seventh to get back up to 100,000.
