Hand #219: With a dead small blind, Eric Wasserson raised to 50,000 on the button, and Kory Kilpatrick three-bet to 150,000 out of the big blind. Wasserson folded.

Hand #220: With a dead button, Kilpatrick raised to 62,000 from the small blind, and Jack Duong called out of the big blind. Kilpatrick led out for 60,000 on a flop of {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{10-Spades}, and Duong called. The turn was the {8-Hearts}, Kilpatrick tossed out another 95,000, and Duong again called.

The {j-Diamonds} completed the board, Kilpatrick fired out a third and final bullet worth 188,000, and Duong moved all in for effectively 242,000. Kilpatrick instantly called.

Duong showed {q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for a straight, but it was no good against Kilpatrick's {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades} for a full house. Duong is out in fourth place, earning $85,616.

Hand #215: Kory Kilpatrick raised to 62,000 out of the small, Jack Duong moved all in from the big blind, and Kilpatrick folded.

Hand #216: Doung raised to 62,000 out of the small blind, and Noah Bronstein tank-folded from the big blind.

Hand #218: Wasserson moved all in for effectively 225,000 in the small blind, and Chris Bell called, putting himself at risk.

Bell: {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}
Wasserson: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}

Wasserson held a commanding lead, and extended it on a flop of {4-Clubs}{4-Spades}{k-Spades}. It was all over for Bell when the turn brought the {5-Clubs}, and the WSOP bracelet winner was already shaking hands by the time the {3-Diamonds} completed the board.

Hand #213: Jack Duong raised in the cutoff, winning the blinds and antes.

Hand #214: Duong was first to act, and he raised to 50,000. Eric Wasserson moved all in for 408,000 on the button, Chris Bell re-shoved, and the action folded through.

Wasserson: {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Bell: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}

"KING BABY!" one of Bell's supporters yelled. "KING!"

Bell didn't necessarily need a king - all he had to do was fade Wasserson's outs - and he failed to on a flop of {7-Spades}{8-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}. Wasserson's pair of jacks held up on the turn ({6-Spades}) and the river ({9-Diamonds}), and he doubled through.

Bronstein: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}

Bell: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}

The aces held for the main pot and Wasserson's pocket tens were good for the side pot as the flop, turn, and river came {6-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{8-Clubs}.
