During a round of Stud-8, Steve Allen limped for 15,000, Michael Dreese moved all in for 20,000, and Allen called.

Michael Dreese:  (As9c)  8dKc9s10c  (3h)
Steve Allen:  (Ah3s)  AcJd6s10s  (5h)

Allen started off with split aces on 3rd street for a pretty big lead, and Dreese picked up a pair of nines on 5th street to pick up some outs for the high, but disqualify him for the low.

Allen’s split aces held up the entire way for him to win the pot and eliminate Dreese in seventh place.

Steve Allen  –  220,000  (7 BB)
Michael Dreese  –  Eliminated in 7th Place  ($1,125)
