Once again, Jeffrey was all-in for his tournament life, this time with [Kh][Jd] against Mark's [Ah][Qd]. This time, Jeffrey could not come from behind. The last board of this tournament ran out [2s][6d][Ac][5d][9h], and Mark finally captured the title. He will take home $77,770 for his first place finish. Congratulations, Mark.

In a flash, Jeffrey Hurwitz was all in again and this time it was a cooler:
Jeffrey would need to put a bad beat on Mark to survive, and he did just that when the board ran out [Ac][5h][3d][6h][9d]. Jeffrey had just under 3 million prior to this hand, so the stacks are almost even now.

Jeffrey Hurwitz was all in preflop with [Ah][Ts] against the [Jh][Th] of Mark Dube. The flop was a reasonably safe [3c][7h][As], and the [7s] turn left Mark drawing dead. The [3d] river was dealt, and Jeffrey counted down his stack to earn the double up. Here are updated chip counts:
Jeffrey - 5,500,000
Mark - 7,000,000

Mohd Eid was all in preflop holding [Ah][Th] against the [8s][8c] of Mark Dube. The crowd was on their toes to watch the flop fall [4d][5s][3s], opening up a few outs for Mohd. The [9s] on the turn kept Mark in front, but gave Mohd 16 outs for the win. When Mohd paired his ace on the river, he celebrated his double up and Mark bemoaned his loss, until someone in the rail pointed out that it was the [As] and that completed Mark's flush. Mohd's emotions were flipped upside down as he realized he was eliminated in 3rd place, but he does have $34,914 to console him.

|Jewook (left) looks back at the board as he makes his exit|
Jewook Oh moved all in from the button holding [Qd][Jd] and Jeffrey Hurwitz moved in all over the top from the small blind holding [Ad][Qc]. Mark Dube reluctantly folded his big blind, and the dealer fanned the [9h][3s][Ac]. Jewook would need runner runner to stay alive, but the [6h] turn left Jewook drawing dead. By the time the [Kd] hit the river, Jewook was shaking his opponents' hands and heading to the payout desk. He will collect $25,813 for his 4th place finish.

Mohd Eid opened the pot from the cutoff before Jewook Oh moved all in. David Pocknett made the call from the small blind, and Jeffrey Hurwitz folded his big blind. Mohd took quite some time before releasing his hand, and then the cards were on their backs:
David had picked up a gutshot straight draw to go with his overcard by the turn when the board read [6h][Ac][Ah][Ts], but the [6c] river delivered Jewook a little more than a double-up.

On a [Kd][5s][Jh] flop, Jim Cowdell moved all in holding Q-T. Jeffrey Hurwitz made the all with [Kc][8c], and would knock Jim out if he didn't hit his open ended straight draw. The [2h] turn and [4h] river failed to deliver what Jim needed, and he was sent to the payout desk to collect $11,450 for his 7th place finish.

|Sherwin Agard (right) looks at the final board in disbelief|
On a [Qd][4h][Tc] flop, Sherwin Agard had coolered Jewook Oh as Sherwin's [Ah][Ac] was well in front of Jewook's [As][Qs]. The dealer burned and turned the [Qc], however, to turn the tables and leave Sherwin drawing to one out. The [7c] was not the right card for him, and he was crippled down to a few chips.
A few hands later, he was eliminated in 8th place, good for $9,002.

The first all in and a call at this final table put the animated Sherwin Agard at risk. He held [Qh][Qc] against his opponent's [Ah][Jc]. Sherwin had a bit of a sweat as his opponent flopped top pair on the [Jh][7c][4c] flop, and the [3c] gave his opponent even more outs with a flush draw. The [6s] river was the blank Sherwin was begging the dealer for, and he doubled up, exclaiming, "The chip taker is real!"

Sherwin "The Fox" Agard found himself all in with the best hand in a 3-way pot. Sherwin held [Ad][Jc] on a [Jh][Th][3c] board against his two opponents who both had the same open ended straight draw and overcards. After the [4s] fell on the turn, Sherwin called for "the deuce... of whatever!" The [4h] hit the river and Sherwin exclaimed, "DEUUUUUCE!!" As the chips were being counted down for Sherwin's triple up, he announced to the field that he'd be winning this tournament. We'll see if that is true later today...
