Joseph Alban - 4th Place

On the first hand of the heads-up match between Jared Jaffee and Joseph Alban, Jaffee folded his button. On the second hand, Alban shoved for about 300,000 and Jaffee called.

Alban: {Q-Spades}{8-Clubs}
Jaffee: {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}

The flop fell {10-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}, keeping Jaffee ahead. The {J-Clubs} turn, however, gave Alban flush and straight outs in addition to a queen, but the {4-Hearts} river was no help, ending his tournament in fourth place.

Jaffee, meanwhile, will hold the chip lead in the the championship match against either Mike Watson or Mark Herm.
