Hand #120 Arthur Pro called from the small blind, before Seth Berger bumped it up an additional 130,000 from the big blind. The raise was enough to see him take down the pot.

Hand #121 Arthur Pro opened to 220,000 from the button, as Seth Berger went into the tank from the small blind. After a few minutes, he opted to raise it up to 680,000, as Matt Perrins quickly got out of the way. With the decision back on Pro, he thought about his decision, before finally releasing his hand.

Hand #122 Seth Berger opened to 145,000 from the button, which was enough to take down the pot.

Hand #123 Matt Perrins opened to 160,000 from the button and was called by Seth Berger from the big blind. The flop came down {3-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{k-Spades}, as Berger checked, before Perrins threw out a continuation bet of 175,000. Berger called, and both watched as the {6-Diamonds} fell on the turn. Berger checked again, as Perrins bet out another 330,000, which was enough to take down the pot.

Hand #124 Arthur Pro opened with a bet, before Seth Berger raised it up to 450,000. Matt Perrins then opted to re-raise to 975,000 in chips, as Berger went into the tank. After thinking for a few minutes, Berger pulled back his original raise, before sliding out a five-bet to 1,600,000. After another minute, Perrins moved all in, as Berger sat back in his chair, completely surprised by his opponents move. He shook his head, and stared down the bet, before finally making the call.

Perrins: {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Berger: {a-Spades}{q-Spades}

Berger had less chips, but had made a great call, holding the better hand, as the dealer went to spread out the flop.

“Kiiiiinnnnngggg,” pleaded Perrins' rail, before the flop came down {8-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}. An eruption of cheers broke out, as Perrins took the lead, with Berger throwing his hands on his head, pacing around the final table. Unfortunately for him, the board ran out the {9-Clubs} and {3-Spades} to see eliminated in third place, as we head to heads-up.
