John Binns

John Binns raised to 24,000 from under the gun, Marc Levy called from the cutoff and Sam Sternfield three-bet to 36,000 from the button. Binns four-bet to 48,000 and both Levy and Sternfield called.

The flop was 9d8d6h, Binns bet his remaining 5,000 and was called by both Levy and Sternfield.

The turn was the 4h, Levy bet 24,000 and Sternfield called.

The river was the 9s and both checked.

Binns:  AdQd10c3h (second-best low)
Levy:  AsKh5d2h (nut low)
Sternfield:  Ac10h4d3c (second-best low, pair of fours)

Levy had the nut low with ace-deuce, while Sternfield’s four was good for the high with nines and fours. Binns’ flopped flush draw missed, while his second-best low was no good either, ending his tournament in ninth place.

Marc Levy  –  390,000  (16 big bets)
Sam Sternfield  –  360,000  (15 big bets)
John Binns  –  Eliminated in 9th Place  ($1,385)
