Justin Bonomo completed with the , Shannon Petluck raised with the , and Ernest Bohn called from the bring-in with the . Bonomo made it three bets, and Petluck moved all in for 79,000. Bohn called, then called down as Bonomo bet every street with a board that developed very strongly.
"I have exactly what it looks like," Bonomo declared. "Three kings."
He showed for trips. Bohn rolled over for a low. Petluck said he started with aces and a ten, so he would need the final king for Broadway, another ace for aces full, or a queen for queens full. He peeled the , though, and told everyone it was a great tournament.
Ted Forrest was fighting bravely with his short stack, but he couldn't fully recover to get back to contention. He lost his tournament life in a contest against a man on the other side of the leader board, Hal Rotholz.
Forrest completed, and Rotholz made it two bets. Forrest called, and fourth street was checked through. Rotholz bet on fifth, and Forrest called off for his remaining 55,000.
Ted Forrest: /
Hal Rotholz: /
Forrest had queens in the hole, but Rotholz showed an even higher pair. The turn and river didn't connect with Forrest's hand, and he left the tournament in eighth place with $15,245.
Ernest Bohn completed with the , and Tim Finne defended his bring-in with the . Bohn caught two consecutive low cards and kept betting, and Finne didn't go anywhere, catching his own third low card on sixth street.
At that point, Finne bet, and Bohn called. Bohn called another bet on the end, and Finne rolled over for an eight-six with aces for high. That was a scooper.
Ted Forrest has been on ropes for quite some time, but he's dodging the bullets like a true master. He avoided elimination once again, scoring a double through Bill Kohler.
Kohler completed, and Forrest put his remaining 49,000 into the middle. Kohler called.

Forrest had already been confirmed as the winner before he turned up his river card, which happened to be another nine.
Ernest Bohn completed, and Justin Bonomo was his sole opponent. Bohn bet on fourth street, and Bonomo called, but the betting lead changed on fifth street, where Bonomo hit open deuces. He bet fifth and sixth before both players checked on the river.

Bohn had in the hole, good for two pair. Bonomo couldn't beat that and conceded a significant pot.
Walter Treccarichi completed first to act with the , and Max Pescatori made it two bets with after a bunch of folds. That didn't deter Bill Kohler or Ernest Bohn, but they dropped out on fourth street when Pescatori bet again, with Treccarichi calling off his remaining chips.
Kohler: / (folded on fourth street)
Bohn: / (folded on fourth street)
Treccarichi had four spades and four to a low, so he had countless ways to improve for at least half of the pot as Pescatori finished with the for just a pair of aces. Treccarichi rolled over the , though, a useless one pair.
Down to just 10,000, Ted Forrest posted the ante and received the . He paid his last 5,000 for the bring-in, and Max Pescatori completed. Ernest Bohn came along and forced Pescatori out on fourth street.

Bohn spiked sixes on seventh street, but Forrest improved to two pair to win the high part of the pot. Forrest scored what was essentially a triple-up after chopping the antes with Bohn.
