Jack Oliver

Hand #168: Jack Oliver jammed for 35,700,000 in the small blind and Holmes in the big blind asked for a count. After one minute and 11 seconds of consideration, Holmes made the call.

Jack Oliver: {a-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}
George Holmes: {q-Spades}{j-Spades}

The {8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop kept Oliver in the lead with a pair of eights but the {j-Clubs} turn improved Holmes to the superior pair.

Nothing changed on the {9-Hearts} river and that spelled the end for Oliver in third place. He takes home $3 million for the efforts and there will now be a short break before heads-up play gets underway.
