Seth Evans - J♥J♣
Steven Shepard - A♦Q♦

The flop brings no help for Shepard when it comes 8♥7♣2♣. The turn brings the 9♦, which is still of no help. Shepard must catch and ace or a queen to stay alive. The river is the T♠ and Evan's pocket jacks hold up.

Shepard exits the tournament in 9th place and receives $4,400 for today's performance.

Seth Evans - 2,489,000
