Steve Billirakis

Steve Billirakis opened to 650,000 from the cutoff and Chris Chong three-bet to 1,825,000 out of the small blind. The action was back on Billirakis who four-bet shoved all in for 9,105,000. Chong thought for a minute and then closed his eyes as he stuck in the chips to call.

Chris Chong: {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}
Steve Billirakis: {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}

Billirakis held the superior pocket pair and was in great shape to double up. That was until the dealer fanned the flop of {k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{5-Spades} with the jack right in the window. The {10-Diamonds} on the turn gave Billirakis an open-ended straight draw, but the {10-Hearts} on the river only improved Chong to a full house. Billirakis was eliminated in 11th place and the remaining 10 players will now redraw for seats at the unofficial final table.
