The large pot is attracting players from the neighboring tables.  Vanessa Selbst comes over and asks her friend in the one seat what the pre-flop action was. The player responds, "It was bet, call, three-bet on the button."

Lee thinks for over four minutes before opting to fold his hand.  He stands up from the table, and walks away from the tournament area with his friend Je Wook Oh that was watching on the rail.

Al-Shurieki's hands are shaking, and as the pot is pushed over to him, he stands up and walks over to a friend at another table and starts whispering to him.

Sam Al-Shurieki - 335,800
Seunghwan Lee - 250,000
