Alex Epstein raised to 650,000 pre-flop and Wasim Korkis three-bet all in for 2,130,000. James Chen looked interested and asked for an exact count of Korkis' stack. Chen took a glimpse at Erik Seidel's four big blind stack to his immediate right, then back to Korkis' chips.

Eventually, Chen folded, as did Robert Mizrachi in the big blind. The action was back on Epstein who called.

Alex Epstein: {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}
Wasim Korkis: {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}

Korkis, cigarette in his mouth as has been his custom throughout the entire tournament took a swig of water as he waited for the flop which was {a-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{3-Clubs} giving Korkis the lead with two pair.

However, the {j-Spades} on the turn gave Epstein a set. Korkis would need to fill up with either an ace or a four, but the river was the {7-Clubs} and he was eliminated in seventh place.
