In a battle of the blinds, Dan Heimiller and Matthew Yorra saw a Js9d3c flop. Heimiller checked, Yorra bet 20,000, and Heimiller check-raised to about 60,000. Yorra moved all in for about 120,000 total, and Heimiller quickly called to put his opponent at risk.

Heimiller: AcJd (pair of jacks)
Yorra: 9s3s (two pair)

Yorra was in front with two pair, but Heimiller seems to be running awfully hot this evening. The Ah appeared promptly on the turn, giving Heimiller a big lead with aces up. The river was the 6s, giving him the pot, and Yorra was sent to the cashier in third place.

Heimiller is now heads up with Zoltan Czinkota for the trophy, and the former has a significant chip lead entering the duel.

Dan Heimiller – 1,320,000 (165 bb)
Zoltan Czinkota – 390,000 (49 bb)
Matthew Yorra – Eliminated
