Hand #72: Daniel Colman opened his button to 2.4 million. Daniel Negreanu called from the small blind and Christoph Vogelsang moved all in from the big blind for 3.775 million. Colman and Negreanu both called and the flop came down {2-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}.

Both active players checked to see the {6-Hearts} hit the turn and the {4-Diamonds} finish the board. Two more checks prompted the cards to be shown.

Colman tabled {K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} for king-high and Negreanu tabled {5-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} for a better two pair of sixes and fives. Vogelsang shook his head and rolled over {A-Spades}{4-Spades} for sixes and fours and the second-best hand. He was eliminated in third place and collected $4,480,001 for his efforts.

Hands #68-69: Vogelsang Under Five Million

• Level 23: 500,000-1,000,000, 150,000 ante

Hand #68: Daniel Colman completed from the small blind and Daniel Negreanu checked the big blind. The flop came {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} and action checked to Negreanu. He fired 1.5 million and Colman called.

Fourth street was the {8-Spades} and both players checked to see the {5-Diamonds} finish off the board. Colman moved out 3.75 million and Negreanu let his cards go.

Hand #69: Colman opened his button to two million and Christoph Vogelsang called from the big blind. The two watched as the flop came down {7-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{7-Spades}. Both players checked and the {5-Spades} hit the felt on the turn. Vogelsang fired at the pot for 2.75 million and Colman called.

The river was the {10-Clubs} and Vogelsang slowed with a check. Colman bet five million while Vogelsang had just 4.575 million behind. Vogelsang went into the tank pondering his tournament life. After about three minutes, Vogelsang released his cards and Colman was awarded the pot.

Hands #66-67: You Know What They Say...

[user101598] • Level 23: 500,000-1,000,000, 150,000 ante

Hand #66: Daniel Colman limped in on the button, Christoph Vogelsang checked in the big blind, and the German check-folded to a bet of 1.25 million on a flop of {9-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}.

Hand #67: Daniel Negreanu raised to 2.25 million on the button, Vogelsang moved all in for 8.9 million out of the small blind, and Negreanu thought for a bit before calling.

Negreanu: {k-Spades}{10-Diamonds}
Vogelsang: {k-Hearts}{j-Clubs}

"It's going to be a tough one," Jack Effel said as the players rolled their cards over.

The dealer fanned {q-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}, and the players traded outs. Negreanu could also win with running diamonds, and the {5-Diamonds} kept that runner-runner flush draw alive.

There were also a few outs to chop, including the {5-Spades} which completed the board.
