After being knocked down to just 15,000 in chips, Mike Baroud was forced all in on the next hand from the small blind.

Scott Baumstein limped from the button for 40,000, Baroud was forced all in from the small blind for 15,000, and Matthew Lambrecht checked his option in the big blind.

Lambrecht and Baumstein checked to the river on a board of 9d4d4sAd4c, and Lambrecht bet 60,000. Baumstein folded.

Lambrecht showed 8s4c for trip fours, but to everyone’s amazement, Baroud turned over AsAh to win the pot with a full house on the turn, aces full of fours, to more than quintuple his chip stack.

Mike Baroud  –  85,000  (2 bb)
Matthew Lambrecht  –  1,400,000  (35 bb)

The next hand, Austin Farmer raised under the gun to 110,000, and Baroud called all in from the button for 85,000 with AdQh. Farmer turned over 9d6d, and Baroud needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came 10d7d2hJd5s, and Farmer won the pot with a diamond flush to eliminate Baroud in fifth place.

Austin Farmer  –  2,825,000  (71 bb)
Mike Baroud  –  Eliminated in 5th Place  ($15,905)
