Shortly after being crippled in a hand against Anderson Ireland where Ireland held {k-}{q-}{8-}{9-} on {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{7-Hearts}, Hai Chu found himself all in for his last 75,000 in the big blind with Joon Park in the small blind and Anderson Ireland on the button.

The flop fell {7-Spades}{7-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} and Ireland called a bet of 50,000 from Park. The turn brought the {4-Diamonds} and Park fired again for 100,000 with Ireland making the call. The {5-Hearts} river fell and Park bet for a third time for 125,000 and Ireland quickly called.

Park tabled {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}{9-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} for pocket kings but Ireland rolled over {q-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} for trip sevens and Chu couldn't beat it and is the fifth-place finisher.

Matt O'Donnell opened to 60,000 from late position with Anderson Ireland calling in the cutoff and Hai Chu defending the big blind.

All three checked a {6-Clubs}{9-Spades}{8-Hearts} flop bringing the {a-Spades} on the turn.

Two more checks saw Ireland bet 75,000. Chu check-raised pot to 417,000 and Ireland called.

The {j-Clubs} fell on the river and after a bit of time, Chu got a count of 615,000 from his opponent and moved all in. Ireland snap-called to put himself at risk.

Chu tabled the {a-Hearts}{10-Spades}{6-Spades}{7-Hearts} for a ten-high straight but Ireland made the nuts with {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{4-Spades} and scored a massive double up to take the chip lead.

Holland Holds to Double

On a flop of {4-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}, Anderson Ireland checked to Andrew Holland who fired a bet of 75,000 into the 60,000-chip pot.

Ireland put Holland all in for his remaining 160,000 and Holland instantly made the call.

Andrew Holland: {3-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{4-Spades}{9-Spades}
Anderson Ireland: {6-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}

Holland's set of fours was in the lead but would need to fade Ireland's open-ended straight draw to stay alive.

The {j-Hearts}{7-Clubs} runout fell in Holland's favor, and he earned a much-needed double to keep the bracelet dream alive.

Ireland Slips to Chu

• Level 24: 12,000-24,000, 0 ante

Anderson Ireland opened under the gun to 50,000. Hai Chu called on the button and Matt O'Donnell came along in the big blind.

The trio saw the flop of {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{7-Spades} and it checked around to the {a-Spades} turn. It checked to Chu who fired a bet of 60,000 and Ireland was the only caller.

The river {5-Hearts} completed the board and the action went check-check. "Ace-king," said Chu, tabling {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} for aces up, and Ireland mucked.
