Josh Kay raised from the button to 650,000, Andrew Wilson reraised from the small blind to 2,400,000, and Chad Eveslage moved all in from the big blind for about 9,600,000. Kay quickly folded his Ad2c.

Wilson called with AhAc, and Eveslage turned over JsJc. Eveslage needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came 7h4d4c3h3d, and the pocket aces held up for Wilson to win the pot and eliminate Eveslage in third place.

Eveslage won the WPT Bellagio Five Diamond World Poker Classic last month, and was looking to become the fourth player in history to win back-to-back WPT events.
