Daniel Lazrus opened to 1,000,000 and Adam Sherman, wearing a bandana, gave Lazrus a needle about his traditional style mask.

"You probably get those little pieces of cotton in your mouth," said Sherman. "Step up your mask game dude."

Sherman defended in the big blind and they saw a flop of {7-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{2-Spades}. Sherman check-called a bet of 1,200,000 and the {q-Hearts} peeled on the turn.

Sherman check-called again, this time to the tune of 4,400,000, and the river fell the {7-Clubs}.

Sherman checked for a third time and Lazrus moved all-in covering Sherman.

"This is a silly call if I'm wrong." He said. "I guess you have a set like queens or something."

After a few seconds, Sherman splashed in a call, only to see he was right. Lazrus indeed had {q-Spades}{q-Clubs} for queens full, and Sherman took off a little tilted.

He takes home more than $100,000 in prize money for his final table run.

Lazrus, meanwhile, holds a third of the chips in play with seven players remaining.

"Flip em' low dealer," said Sherman, to the amusement of the table.

The turn was the {2-Diamonds}, Gencarelli slowed down with a check, and Sherman bet 1,200,000 to take down the pot.

Saffron Finds Ace to Double Through Moron's Jacks

BrandonBloom • Niveau 35: 250,000-500,000, 500,000 ante

Todd Saffron jammed for his remaining 4.5 million preflop and Ignacio Moron called.

Todd Saffron: {a-Spades}{5-Spades}
Ignacio Moron: {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

Moron was in the lead until the {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{q-Spades} flop. Moron needed a jack or to complete his Broadway draw but the {q-Clubs} turn and {2-Clubs} river kept Saffron alive.

Daniel Lazrus raised to 800,000 from early position and Sertac Turker jammed for around 5.5 million from the small blind. Lazrus called and hands were revealed.

Sertac Turker: {a-Hearts}{j-Spades}
Daniel Lazrus: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

Turker and his rail saw the bad news and were looking for some help. The flop came {10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{7-Spades}. The dealer put down the {10-Spades} turn while Turker's rail and Adam Sherman were yelling for an eight or jack on the river. Instead, the {4-Hearts} came to eliminate Turker.

Sherman said his rooting for Turker to hit was nothing personal and he would've been rooting for Lazrus to stay alive if he were the short stack, but Lazrus didn't seem to mind as he took the chips to add to his stack and the final table is now without another player.

Adam Sherman opened to 1,000,000 from middle position and Ignacio Moron from the big blind asked how much Sherman was playing.

"Uhh, about 11 million back," said Sherman a little tentatively.

Moron moved all-in for the bigger stack and Sherman folded.

"I guess they are going to three-bet me," he said.

On the next hand, Sherman opened again, this time to 800,000. Moron called from the small blind and they saw the {a-Spades}{9-Hearts}{4-Spades} flop.

Moron checked, Sherman bet 1,200,000 and Moron laid it down.
