Hand #18: Chris Brammer raised to 160,000 from the hijack and took down the pot.

Hand #19: Rui Ye raised to 160,000 from under the gun, and Michael Brinkenhoff called from the small blind.

The flop came down {J-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{5-Clubs}, and Brinkenhoff check-called 125,000 from Ye. The turn was the {9-Clubs}, and Brinkenhoff shoved for 1,155,000. Ye called after a few moments with {Q-Hearts}{J-Clubs} for a pair of jacks, leading Brinkenhoff's {A-Hearts}{9-Hearts} for a pair of nines.

The river was the {10-Spades}, giving Ye a queen-high straight to eliminate Brinkenhoff in seventh place.

Ye upped his stack to about 4.7 million.
