Jason Koon finishes strong.

While Nick Yunis was being eliminated, Michael Telker, Jason Koon, and Govert Metaal were building a big pot on the other table. Metaal started the action, raising to 25,000 from the cutoff seat. Telker three-bet to 68,000 on the button, Koon cold four-bet to 123,000 from the small blind, and the action was back on Metaal.

"How much is the minimum raise?" he asked the dealer.

The dealer examined Telker's three-bet and Koon's four-bet, and informed Metaal that the minimum raise would be to 178,000. Metaal decided to make it 190,000, Telker immediately folded, and Koon called.

The flop fell {2-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}, and both players checked. The {7-Hearts} turned, and Koon led for 142,000. Metaal sat quietly for around thirty seconds, then folded {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs} face up.

Koon showed the {9-Hearts}, mucked his hand, and scooped the last pot of the night to take the chip lead.
