After Kevin Conroy limped in from under the gun, Dan Voccia raised to 60,000. Donald Fales moved all in for 195,000 and Conroy made the call. Voccia thought for a moment before mucking his hand, stating he had pocket sevens. Fales did not like hearing that, as he turned over [7d][7s]. Conroy flipped up [Kc][Kh] and was way ahead. The board of [Ah][Tc][2d][3s][Jd] did not improve Fales' hand and he was eliminated in 5th place for $8,320.
