Todd Brunson - 3rd Place.

Todd Brunson raised from the small blind, and Can Kim Hua made the call. Brunson continuation-bet the {10-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{9-Spades} flop, and Kim came along. The turn brought a {q-Spades}, and Brunson bet and was called again. The river was a {2-Spades}, and Brunson check-called.

Brunson: {a-}{q-}{x-}{x-}
Hua: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}{2-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}

Hua's nut flush took the pot, leaving Brunson with about one big bet.

A few hands later, Calen McNeil limped the small blind, and Todd Brunson raised from the big blind.

The flop came {j-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{2-Hearts}, and McNeil came out betting. Brunson raised his last 10,000, and McNeil called.

Brunson: {a-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{7-Clubs}
McNeil: {4-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

McNeil had an open-ended straight draw, but Brunson was ahead for both sides with a pair of threes for high and a better low draw. Unfortunately for him, McNeil binked his gin card, an {a-Clubs}, and the man known as "Big Wheel" McNeil among his friends had turned one. A {9-Clubs} completed the board, and Brunson was out.
