• Level 35: 250,000-500,000, 500,000 ante
Adam Sherman

Daniel Lazrus opened to 1,000,000 and Adam Sherman, wearing a bandana, gave Lazrus a needle about his traditional style mask.

"You probably get those little pieces of cotton in your mouth," said Sherman. "Step up your mask game dude."

Sherman defended in the big blind and they saw a flop of {7-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{2-Spades}. Sherman check-called a bet of 1,200,000 and the {q-Hearts} peeled on the turn.

Sherman check-called again, this time to the tune of 4,400,000, and the river fell the {7-Clubs}.

Sherman checked for a third time and Lazrus moved all-in covering Sherman.

"This is a silly call if I'm wrong." He said. "I guess you have a set like queens or something."

After a few seconds, Sherman splashed in a call, only to see he was right. Lazrus indeed had {q-Spades}{q-Clubs} for queens full, and Sherman took off a little tilted.

He takes home more than $100,000 in prize money for his final table run.

Lazrus, meanwhile, holds a third of the chips in play with seven players remaining.
