On the final hand before break Josh Oswald made his move and ran into the buzzsaw of Charles Leroi.
With the blinds at 25,000/50,000, Hyun Lee limped into the pot. Josh Oswald shoved behind for close to 200k. Charles Leroi thought for 30 seconds or so before moving in over the top. He had Lee covered. Lee made the quick fold.
Oswald showed pocket 3s and Leroi showed pocket aces. The flop came 8sAh6h. Turn 5h. River Qh. Oswald took home $6,178 for 5th place.
Players are headed to break.
