Billy Jordanou - 3rd Place
Phil Ivey raised to 68,000 from the big blind after Billy Jordanou completed from the small blind. Jordanou called.

The flop came down {J-Clubs} {10-Clubs} {6-Clubs} and Jordanou fired 150,000. Ivey raised all in and Jordanou called.

Jordanou: {J-Hearts} {10-Spades}
Ivey: {Q-Hearts} {Q-Clubs}

Ivey's pocket queens were out-flopped by Jordanou who now held two pair.

The turn card was the {Q-Spades} and spiked a set for Ivey, putting him in the lead and pushing Jordanou out the door. The river card completed the board with the {3-Clubs}.

Jordanou left the arena with a standing ovation from his cheering section. He tipped his hat to them, walking away with $300,000 AUD.
