Royce Matheson

Royce Matheson shoved all in from the button and Steven Wolansky called.

Steven Wolansky: {k-Hearts}{3-Hearts}
Royce Matheson: {8-Hearts}{7-Spades}

The board ran out {6-Spades}{3-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{10-Hearts}, they both flopped a pair but Matheson's pair of eights had the better of Wolansky. The turn and the river bricked for him and Matheson was the one to be allowed to bag his chips for the final table tomorrow.
