Patrick Eskandar completed from the small blind, and Brian Hastings checked his option in the big.

The flop was Ks6d4h. Eskandar checked, Hastings bet 20,000, and Eskandar called. The turn was the Qs, and Eskandar quickly moved all in. Hastings had just less than 300,000 chips left in front of him, and he eventually called to put himself at risk.

Eskandar: Qd4c (queens up)
Hastings: Kd7c (pair of kings)

The river was the 2s, and Eskandar won the pot with two pair, eliminating Hastings in third place.

Eskandar is now heads-up with Tom Nguyen for the trophy in Event 11.

Patrick Eskandar – 910,000 (91 bb)
Tom Nguyen – 600,000 (60 bb)
Brian Hastings – Eliminated in 3rd place ($15,624)
