Fabian Quoss, who won the $100,000 High Roller at the PCA, opened for 50,000 from early position and received a call from Daniel Negreanu. When action reached Doug "WGCRider" Polk on the button he opted for a three-bet to 127,000.
The blinds both folded and action was back on Quoss. The German thought for awhile and even used one of his two red "time-bank" chips. He eventually pushed back with a pot-size four-bet, Negreanu folded, and Polk moved all in. Quoss called off and the cards were turned up.
It was a huge flip, and for Quoss there was AU$350,000 on the line because that's the minimum payday he'd be missing out on if his tens failed to hold. With the railbirds leaning in close the dealer ran out the board lightening quick — .
Polk found a king to win the hand, and Quoss was sent to the rail empty handed.
The field is down to the final eight players, and they'll now take a 45-minute dinner break before heading up to Studio 3 to play out the final table, which of course will be filmed for television.

Daniel Negreanu min-raised to 48,000 from the cutoff, and Richard Yong tossed all of his chips in the middle from the big blind. This is only pot-limit preflop, however, so Yong was only allowed to raised to 166,000, leaving 26,000 behind. Negreanu wanted to just get the rest in but announced, "call," so the two took a flop of .
Yong said that he only looked at one card, then showed for ace-high. Negreanu tabled for sevens and fours.
