Craig Varnell raised to 300,000 from middle position, Jason Lipiner three-bet shoved from the big blind for 640,000, and Varnell called to put him at risk.

Craig Varnell: {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{10-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
Jason Lipiner: {A-Spades}{K-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}

The two players had nearly identical hands but Varnell had a slight preflop advantage. The board ran out {7-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{8-Spades}{J-Spades} and Varnell took the pot with a pair of eights to end Lipiner's deep run in this event.

Action folded around to Craig Varnell in the hijack and he raised to 330,000. Conway Frankenheimer three-bet shoved from the button for 610,000 and Varnell called to put him at risk.

Craig Varnell: {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{3-Clubs}
Conway Frankenheimer: {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}

Frankenheimer had the preflop advantage with his kings and Varnell needed to improve in order to stack him. The {10-Hearts}{5-Spades}{3-Diamonds} flop kept Frankenheimer in the lead, but the {7-Spades} turn gave Varnell two pair, leaving Frankenheimer in need of help on the river. The last card was the {J-Hearts} which changed nothing so Varnell took the pot to end Frankenheimer's deep run in this event.

With Frankenheimer's elimination, the official final table has been reached and the remaining nine players are taking a 10-minute break before the stream begins.

Li Doubles Through Zimmerman

Ilian Li
Ilian Li

Ilian Li raised to 280,000 from middle position and Seth Zimmerman called from the big blind. He bet in the dark to put Li to a decision for the remainder of his chips before the dealer fanned out the {8-Clubs}{7-Spades}{6-Hearts} flop. Li, who only had 335,000 to start the hand, called to put himself at risk.

Ilian Li: {A-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{5-Hearts}
Seth Zimmerman: {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}

While Zimmerman's hand had been best preflop, Li had taken the lead with flopped two pair. The {7-Clubs} turn put Zimmerman back out in front, but the {9-Diamonds} river meant Li would take the pot with a nine-high straight to double up.

Duhamel Doubles Through Zimmerman

mnuwwarah • Niveau 30: 40,000-80,000, 0 ante

Seth Zimmerman opened for 225,000 under the gun and Jonathan Duhamel jammed for 365,000 more.

"I wish I could ask you if I'm supposed to call this," Zimmerman said.

About 10 seconds later, he slid in the chips and tabled {q-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}, saying he knew he was against aces. Sure enough, Duhamel had {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{2-Hearts}. The {2-Spades}{8-Hearts}{4-Spades}{10-Clubs}{8-Clubs} runout gave a bit of sweat on the turn but sent a double to the former WSOP Main Event champ.
