The battle for the pay jump between fourth and fifth place has been won by Travis Speck with the elimination of Gilbert Martinez (pictured).
Martinez raised to 75,000 on the button and Byron Abernathy three-bet to about 250,000 out of the small blind. Speck folded his big blind and Martinez piled for 525,000 total.
Abernathy called with the overpair 10♠10♥ to the Q♠J♠ of Martinez. The 10♣7♠5♥ flop put Martinez right into hell. No help came on the turn and Martinez takes home his first career five-figure score.
