Anthony Mender was at risk and trailed against the pair of queens of Justin Liberto. He didn't make any pair but spiked the low on the river for a chop.

James Woods: {7-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} / {6-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{9-Spades} / {6-Hearts}

Mender was then at risk with aces in the hole and James Woods took the lead with two pair. Woods bricked his additional straight draw and made "three pairs" while Mender spiked the broadway straight for the double.
