Peter Gelencser had the button and both players put in three bets pre-draw and then drew two each. After the first draw, Zimmerman was first up and bet. Gelencser raised and then Zimmerman reraised. Gelencser called.

For the second go around, Zimmerman stood pat. Gelencser drew one card and then raised after Zimmerman bet out. Zimmerman made the call.

Although Zimmerman stood pat on the last draw, for the third draw he broke his hand and drew one card. Gelencser was the one to stand pat this time. Both players then checked.

Zimmerman showed a ninety-seven, but was beat by Gelencser's eighty-six. Zimmerman dropped back to 1.275 million while Gelenscer closed the gap and now has just about one million.

Don McNamara - 3rd Place
Don McNamara - 3rd Place

Don McNamara called Peter Gelencser's raise out of the big blind. Gelencser was on the button. McNamara drew three and Gelencser also drew threw.

"That means I'm way behind if he draws three," said McNamara.

After the draw, McNamara bet and Gelencser called. McNamara stood pat for the next draw and Gelencser drew one. McNamara bet his last 30,000 after the second draw and McNamara called. McNamara stood pat again and Gelencser broke a ten to draw better. He then asked McNamara what he had and McNamara said he had a jack. Gelencser's face was overcome with an upset look, having broke the winner, but he pulled an eight to draw to a {9-}{8-}{5-}{3-}{2-} and beat McNamara's {J-}{9-}{8-}{6-}{2-}.

McNamara finished in third place and earned himself $73,803.
