Salvatore Sollecito completed the small blind to 200,000, and Daniel Le checked his option in the big blind.

The flop came 9s9d2c, Sollecito moved all in for about 1.5 million, and Le quickly called with 9c5d for trip nines.

Sollecito said, “I’m drawing dead,” and he turned over 6c2h for two pair, nines and deuces. (Strictly speaking, he wasn’t drawing dead, but he needed to catch both of the last two deuces in the deck — nearly a 1,000-to-1 shot — to stay alive.)

The turn card was the Jc, the river card was the As, and Le won the pot with his trip nines to eliminate Sollecito in fourth place.

Daniel Le  –  5,250,000  (26 bb)
