Max Lehmanski Eliminated in 5th Place ($249,291)
Nível 24 : 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Hand #35: Dani Stern raised to 105,000 from under the gun, Steve Sung three-bet to 330,000 from the small blind, and Stern moved all in for 2.35 million. Stern tanked for the better part of three minutes, then folded.
Hand #36: On the final hand of the level, Phil Galfond raised to 100,000 in the cutoff, Max Lehmanski moved all in from the small blind for a little over 1.3 million, and Galfond snap-called.
Lehmanski's hand was crushed, and Galfond's aces held as the board rolled out . The German will earn nearly a quarter of a million dollars for his fifth-place finish.
The remaining four players are now on a 60-minute dinner break. We will have full counts shortly.
