Daniel Weinman moved all in on the button and Michael Mizrachi called out of the big blind and was all in for 635,000. Weinman showed As6c and was in the lead against Mizrachi’s KdJh.

The crowd rose to their feet with the title on the line for Weinman. The flop came 9h6h2s and Weinman kept his lead with a pair of sixes.

The turn was the 7d and Mizrachi needed to hit a king or a jack to double up and stay alive.

The river was the Ks and Mizrachi gives a Derek Jeter-esque fist pump as the crowd goes nuts. Mizrachi doubled up with a pair of kings, putting a significant dent in Weinman’s chip lead.

Michael Mizrachi – 1,260,000 (43 bb)
Daniel Weinman – 2,020,000 (71 bb)

Daniel Santoro

Daniel Weinman moved all in from the small blind and Daniel Santoro called from the big blind.

Santoro was the at-risk player for his last 610,000. He showed KsQh and needed to improve against Weinman’s Ah4h.

The flop was Qs8c2s and most of Michael Mizrachi’s rail groaned as Santoro took the lead. The turn was the 7c and most of the rail was shouting for an ace, rooting for Mizrachi to get heads-up with Weinman.

The river was the Ac and Weinman hit his ace to eliminate Santoro in third place. Santoro earned $133,525 for his third place finish, while Weinman took a massive five-to-one chip lead into heads-up play vs. Mizrachi.

Daniel Weinman – 2,750,000 (92 bb)
