Action began with Chiab Saechao, who opened for 60,000 from the button. Patricia Baker folded from the small blind and James Routos announced he was all in from the big for his last 300,000. Saechao quickly called and hands were revealed.

Routos: {A-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}
Saechao: {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades}

The board ran out {J-Spades}{6-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}, failing to improve Routos' hand and sending him to the rail in 3rd place.
