Hand #55:

Dan Heimiller opened for 225,000 and Anthony Wise moved all in.

Wise {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}

Heimiller {j-Hearts}{7-Hearts}

The cards ran out {k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{10-Hearts}. The baby pair of Wise was out flopped and he was done for the day.

Dennis Phillips

Hand #54: Dennis Phillips raised to 215,000 and four-bet shoved all in after Donald Maas put in a three-bet to 500,000. Maas called:

Phillips: {A-Spades}{9-Hearts}
Maas: {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

The {7-Clubs}{3-Spades}{8-Diamonds} flop was of no help to the 2012 runner-up of this very same event, nor was the {4-Hearts} on the turn. Three aces were left but the {5-Spades} river completed the board.
