Hand #69: Antonio Esfandiari had the button, and raised to 1.6 million. Sam Trickett folded from the big blind, and David Einhorn moved all in for 15.025 million from the big. Esfandiari called, tabling {k-Clubs}{10-Spades}, which dominated Einhorn's {k-Spades}{9-Clubs}.

The flop fell {9-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{6-Hearts}, and it tricked some spectators because they saw the {9-Diamonds} first. The {10-Hearts} kept Esfandiari in the lead, however. The {3-Hearts} on the turn was a brick, and so too was the {q-Spades} on the river, eliminating Einhorn in third place.

Einhorn received a rousing round of applause from his rail, which is well-deserved - he plans to donate the entire $4,352,000 he's earned to City Year, an education-focused nonprofit organization.

Hand #61: Phil Hellmuth had the button, and the action folded to him. He folded as well, and Antonio Esfandiari raised. Sam Trickett released, and Esfandiari took down the pot.

Hand #62: Antonio Esfandiari had the button, and Phil Hellmuth was first to act. He opened to 2.8 million, Esfandiari released, and Sam Trickett three-bet jammed for 33.575 million. David Einhorn folded from the big blind, and Hellmuth quickly called all in for 8.025 million.

Hellmuth tabled {a-Spades}{10-Spades}, and he was trailing Trickett's {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}.

There was a pause for effect, then the dealer rapped the table, burned a card, and spread {a-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{5-Hearts}. The entire mothership erupted. The flop gave Hellmuth aces and tens, but Trickett had ace-high flush draw, and any queen would give him a better two pair.

The crowd hushed as the dealer burned a second card, and delivered the {k-Diamonds} on the turn. The crowd erupted once more. Now, Trickett could make the best hand with any heart, any king, any jack, or any queen.

The mothership went silent as the dealer rapped the table one final time. He burned a card, then spiked the {j-Clubs} on the river. A chorus of cheers and "ooohhhs" filled the air as Trickett stood to shake Hellmuth's hand. A fourth-place finish has to be bittersweet for the twelve-time WSOP bracelet winner, but this is the biggest score of his career, and a top-notch accomplishment.

Hand #59: On the first hand of the next level, David Einhorn had the button. Actin folded to him and he raised to 1.6 million. Phil Hellmuth made the call from the big blind and the flop came down {A-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}. Hellmuth checked, Einhorn bet two million and Hellmuth folded.

Hand #60: Guy Laliberté had the button. Sam Trickett raised to 1.6 million from under the gun and Laliberté three-bet to five million. Antonio Esfandiari reraised from the big blind to 12.3 million and Trickett folded. Laliberté moved all in for over 25 million quickly and Esfandiari called to put a pot over 50 million up for grabs.

Laliberté: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}
Esfandiari: {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}

The flop came down {J-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} and Laliberté stayed in front with his queens. The two stood hugging in the middle of the stage and looked to be having a blast, despite flipping for tons and tons of chips.

The turn card was the {K-Spades} and Laliberté fell behind as Esfandiari smashed a king to make a higher pair. The river was delivered with the {4-Clubs} and that was it. Esfandiari had won the pot and eliminated Laliberté in fifth place.

Laliberté was sent off with a standing ovation from everyone in the rooms. Hundreds clapped and cheered before chants of, "Guy! Guy! Guy! Guy! Guy!" rang through the Amazon Room. He received hugs from all the players and gave them back, before exiting the same way he came in, through the back tunnel of the ESPN Main Stage.
