Hand 36: Jake Schindler raised to 27,000 on the button with {k-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} and Keith Tilston called with {7-Hearts}{2-Hearts} in the big blind. The flop fell {k-Spades}{j-Hearts}{3-Clubs} and Tilston check-folded to a bet of 20,000 from Schindler.

Hand 37: Schindler opened to 27,000 again with {a-Spades}{7-Clubs} and Negreanu called with {6-Hearts}{4-Hearts} in the big blind. The flop came {5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} and Negreanu checked his flopped straight. Schindler continued for 25,000 and Negreanu check-raised to 110,000. Schindler elected to let his hand go and Negreanu took it down.

Hand 38: Tilston raised to 30,000 on the button with {a-Hearts}{4-Spades} and Schindler defended with {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}. The flop came {a-Spades}{j-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and both players checked to the {7-Hearts} on the turn. Schindler completed his flush and checked again. Tilston fired 40,000 with top pair and the nut flush draw and Schindler check-raised to 135,000. Tilston thought for a moment and then made the call. The {10-Spades} on the river changed nothing and Schindler led out for 275,000. Tilston burned through one of his time extension before making the correct laydown.

Hand 39: Schindler limped in with {7-Spades}{4-Diamonds} in the small blind and Tilston checked his {7-Clubs}{5-Spades} in the big blind. Schindler led out for 12,000 on the flop of {j-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{2-Spades} and Tilston called. The {7-Diamonds} on the turn paired the board and gave both players trip sevens. Schindler fired another 45,000 and Tilston raised to 135,000. Schindler called and the {a-Hearts} completed the board. Schindler started with a check and Tilston bet 250,000. Schindler took some time to think about his decision but finally made the call and chopped the pot.

Hand 40: Tilston raised it up to 45,000 in the small blind with {q-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and Negreanu called with {j-Spades}{7-Hearts} in the big blind. The dealer fanned the flop of {a-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{2-Hearts} and Tilston led out for 45,000 with his flush draw. Negreanu quickly mucked his hand and Tilston raked in another pot.

Hand 41: Tilston opened to 30,000 on the button with {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds} and Negreanu three-bet to 150,000 out of the small blind with {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}. With the action back on Tilston, he shoved all in, putting Negreanu to the test for the rest of his chips. Negreanu announced a fold and Tilston extended his lead.

Hand 35: Daniel Negreanu limped with the {9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} and a short-stacked Tom Marchese moved all in holding the {a-Clubs}{4-Clubs}. Negreanu made the easy call to put Marchese at risk.

A {2-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} flop put Negreanu in the lead but the {9-Clubs} on the turn gave Marchese a club draw. Unfortunately, the {k-Spades} peeled off on the river and Marchese was eliminated in fourth place taking home $165,000.
