$2,100 Event is now heads up

Samuel Panzica (left) and Michael Harvey (right) play heads up
Michael Harvey was all in on a [5c][Qs][3d][2h] board holding [2s][2c] and was up against John Racener's [Ad][4c]. The turn card had given Michael a set, but unfortunately for him it gave John a straight. Michael begged for the dealer to pair the river, and the [3s] was just what he needed. The stacks were counted down, and John was left with just 60,000.

John was able to double up one or two times, but he eventually fell in 3rd place when his [8s][8h] lost to Samuel Panzica's [As][8c]. An ace hit the turn, and John will have to settle for a $50,820 payday, plus a $7,500 Bay 101 Shooting Star seat.

The remaining two will battle it out for the first place prize of $121,710, Second place will take home $83,180, while both players have already locked up a $7,500 Bay 101 Shooting Star seat as well.
