Nelson Beck (left), Craig Mason (center) and Keith Masseta (right)

Nelson Beck limped from under the gun, Craig Mason raised to 75,000 from the cutoff and Keith Masseta moved all in for 316,000 from the button. Both of his opponents called.

Beck checked in the dark, the flop came 9c8c4h, and Mason bet 200,000 creating a side pot. Beck called.

Both players checked the Qh on the turn and the Kh on the river.

Beck turned over QsJs for a pair of queens, beating Mason’s JhJc and Masseta’s Ad10s. Masseta’s 25th place elimination created the three table redraw.

Nelson Beck – 3,476,000 (87 bb)
Craig Mason – 960,000 (40 bb)
Keith Masseta – Eliminated
