After the break, Nathan Lee opened to 1,000,000 from the button and Ryan McKnight three-bet to 2,400,000 from the small blind. Jeff Kessler folded his big and Lee announced: “all in”. McKnight quickly called at risk with a monster.

McKnight: AdAc
Lee: JdTs

“Oh, I didn’t think you were that strong!” Lee said.

The big hand was ahead preflop but Lee nailed the JsTd8c flop to take the lead. The 9s turn and 2s river completed the bad best for McKnight and he was sent out in sixth place.

Nathan Lee – 17,175,000 (43 bb)
