Eric Ward

Eric Ward and Carlos Bermudez were in a race for the chip lead but Ward took it with authority. And one out.

On the next-to-last hand of the night, Ward flopped a set of queens against a set of aces, the money went in, and he found the case queen on the river to send the player out. Ward bagged up 565,000 and Bermudez finished not far behind with 532,000.

We will post the entire chip count list as soon as it is available.
