During a round of Stud-8, Phil Hui got it all in on sixth street against Andrew Laikin, and they turned over their hole cards:

Andrew Laikin:  Kc5c  5hKh10c2c  (two pair, kings and fives, flush draw)
Phil Hui:  10s10h  4hQc4c9c  (two pair, tens and fours)

Neither player had a qualifying low draw, and Hui needed to catch a four or the last ten to stay alive.

Andrew Laikin:  Kc5c  5hKh10c2c  7s  (two pair, kings and fives)
Phil Hui:  10s10h  4hQc4c9c  As  (two pair, tens and fours)

Laikin won the pot with his higher two pair to eliminate Hui in fourth place.

Andrew Laikin  –  625,000  (13 BB)
Phil Hui  –  Eliminated in 4th Place  ($3,070)

Phil Hui has already won four titles here at Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood, but he’ll have to wait at least a little longer before winning his fifth.

With three players remaining, the average chip stack is about 420,000 (8 Big Bets), and the remaining players are all guaranteed to earn at least $4,355 each.
