Denise Pratt raised preflop, and Kristen Bicknell called. The flop came 10d3d6c, Pratt bet, and Bicknell moved all in.

Pratt called with Qh10h for a pair of tens, and Bicknell turned over Jd7d for a diamond flush draw. Bicknell needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was a Kx, the river card was an Ax, and the pocket tens held up for Pratt to win the pot and eliminate Bicknell from the tournament.

Denise Pratt  –  463,000  (77 bb)

Gavin Munroe was second in chips at the break with about 900,000, but he’s having a pretty good level so far, because he’s already built that up to more than 1.4 million, which is probably enough for the chip lead.

Gavin Munroe  –  1,436,000  (239 bb)
