The aftermath of the massive hand.

A massive hand just took place over on Table 445 that saw one player pull out to a massive chip lead.

We're not 100% on the details, but the following is what we could piece together from various accounts from the table and the rail.

It began with A.J. Thompson opening for 8,000 and receiving calls from the small blind and Charles Sylvestre, who was in the big. Two checks on the {5-Hearts}{10-Spades}{7-Clubs} flop saw Thompson bet 17,500, the small blind fold and Sylvestre wake up with a check-raise to 50,000. Thompson responded with a three-bet to 125,000, Sylvestre moved all in with what turned out to be the {5-Clubs}{7-Spades} and Thompson called off his stack holding the {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}.

Thompson held an overpair but it was behind the flopped two pair of Sylvestre. Neither the {3-Spades} turn nor {2-Spades} river helped Thompson and he was eliminated from the tournament while Sylvestre raked in a pot of approximately 600,000!
