In the very first hand of the final table, during a Hold’em round, Michael Dreese called all in from the button for 3,000. Phil Hui completed the small blind to 10,000, and Lazaro Rodriguez checked his option in the big blind.

The flop came Kc9h3d, Hui checked, Rodriguez bet 10,000, and Hui called.

The turn card was the 6h, and both players checked. The river card was the 8s, and they checked again. All three players showed their cards.

Phil Hui:  Jd10c  (jack high)
Lazaro Rodriguez:  Ks7c  (pair of kings)
Michael Dreese:  4s4d  (pair of fours)

Rodriguez won the entire pot with his pair of kings to eliminate Dreese in seventh place.

Lazaro Rodriguez  –  93,000  (5 BB)
Phil Hui  –  220,000  (11 BB)
Michael Dreese  –  Eliminated in 7th Place  ($1,875)
