With Mitch Schock on the button, all four players limped to see a flop of . Rodney Brown was first to act and led out for 58,000. Jan Collado called from the big blind, and Carter Gill potted all in for 312,000 total. Schock quickly got out of the way, Brown moved all in for 542,000, and Collado tank-folded.
Gill was at risk and needed to improve. His best bet of doing so was to catch a queen or a club, neither of which appeared on the turn, which was the . With one card to go, Gill leaned back in his chair and awaited his fate. The dealer burned and slowly revealed the , giving Brown quads and the win.
Gill was eliminated from the tournament in fourth place and will take home $97,773 for his efforts.
This pot was bigger than the three shortest stacks in the field pot together. It started innocently enough when Tyler Patterson raised to 50,000 on the button and Mitch Schock defended in the big blind. The flop was and Schock check-called a bet of 55,000 from Patterson to see the turn.
Schock checked a second time and Patterson fired out 125,000 only to see himself getting check-raised to 450,000. Patterson thought for a minute or two and moved all in, Schock nodded and called.
Patterson's rail, fresh from downing shots of Jaeger, bayed for a deuce, king or ace but the dealer instead put out the . It was a two million chip pot but it's gone the way of the man who just won the chip leader barely ten minutes ago instead of the man who had been in control of the final table at the start.
Carter Gill raised to 48,000 on the button only to have Mitch Schock make it 135,000 to go from the small blind. The big blind got out of the way and Gill opted to four-bet pot. "All in," Schock responded.
"I guess I have to call," Gill said as he showed . Schock was more than happy to show for the superior hand, much to Gill's dismay. With 1.5 million in the pot, the flop came down . "Jack of diamonds," Gill pleaded. The turn was not it.
Gill seemed to know he was destined to lose, but tried one more time nonetheless. "Jack of diamonds." Instead, the dealer delivered the . Schock gave a subdued fist pump in excitement as he doubled into the chip lead.
David Lestock raised pot to 70,000 and Carter Gill flat-called before James Vanneman moved all behind them for nearly 250,000. Lestock set his his chips in the middle and Gill shrugged and called, no doubt delighted with what he saw:

The on the turn gave a few more outs for the two short stacks but the wasn't one of them and we had a double elimination on our final table.
On the first hand back from the break, action folded to David Lestock in the small blind and he raised pot. Carter Gill reraise from the big to get the short stack all in and Lestock made the call.
Lestock knew he had to get something going if he hoped to recover from the pre-break cooler, and it was looking good on the . Not only could he hit a seven or three to take the lead, he could now guarantee a double with any diamond. It may have been 7-3, but when the spiked on the turn, it was as good as gold.
The meaningless was put out on the river as Lestock doubled his stack, which is still the shortest of all the players.
