Galen Hall
Galen Hall at the table, recently eliminated Sayed in the back

Sayed had the chance to make it to the 5th place, but we soon out, in an unfortunate hand, he pushed his remaining 325,000 chips (25th blind level, 5,000/30,000/60,000) with pocket fives. Galen Hall called with his {#}A {#}T, and saw the shocking flop, which brought all the remaining tens. Sayed made a full house, but was drawing dead to Hall's four of a kind. The {#}4 turn and the {#}Q river didn't do any good. Galen Hall wasn't the only happy person to see this hand, Andy Frankenberger won the WPT Player of the Year by this.

The Final Table formed with the elimination of David Peters.

Galen Hall remained the chipleader, followed by Scott Seiver and Roger Teska. We are quite sure it will be an interesting an action-packed final table, we will get back to you with the results soon!
