Hand #71: The action folded to Michael Benko in the cutoff who ripped all in for 7,900,000 and James Carroll pushed all in over the top from the small blind. Chris Chong folded the big blind and the two hands were tabled.

James Carroll: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Michael Benko: {a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}

Carroll had a dominating lead heading to the flop of {6-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{4-Spades}. The turn brought the {2-Diamonds} giving Benko some chop outs, but the {k-Spades} on the river secured the win for Carroll and Benko was eliminated in sixth place.
