Hand 27: Jason Wheeler in the small blind asked how much his neighbor Harry Lodge was playing, and then moved in with {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}. Harry Lodge called for 1,015,000 with {A-Spades}{5-Spades}.

The flop came {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}{9-Spades}, giving Lodge the flush draw and some chop outs. The {8-Clubs} on the turn added some additional outs for Lodge but the {Q-Hearts} on the river was a blank and Harry Lodge hit the rail in 5th place.
