On the hand after Steve Hagar knocked out Carey Pickus, he was mixing it up against Greg Baird. With around 100,000 in the pot and the board reading 8s6h3c9h, Hagar put Baird all in and he called for 95,000.

Hagar: 8c8d
Baird: KcKs

Baird was dealt a monster but Hagar out-flopped it and his set was good after the As river to send Baird out in seventh place.

Steve Hagar – 410,000 (68 bb)
Greg Baird – Eliminated in 6th place ($3,601)

Carey Pickus

Carey Pickus was the short stack coming into the final table and tried for an early double. She moved all in for 85,000 from the small blind after Steve Hagar opened and he called with a big hand.

Pickus: AsJs
Hagar: QcQs

Pickus needed to catch her over card ace or some straight/flush board. The Tc8s3c flop was a blank, she paired her jack on the Jd turn, but the 2s river sent her out in seventh place.

Steve Hagar – 240,000 (40 bb)
Carey Pickus – Eliminated in 7th place ($2,634)

Dimitry Agrachov’s chips await his return

Event 6 players took their final break of the day but not before Dimitry Agrachov hit a big hand. He had David Carpenter all in with a race between Agrachov’s 4c4s and Carpenter’s Ad6d.

Carpenter flopped two pair on the AhKh6s board, no sweat on the 3c turn, but Agrachov hit one of his two outs on the 4d river. The hand sent Carpenter out in 12th place and Agrachov stacked up a chip leading 423,000 before taking his break.

Dimitry Agrachov – 423,000 (77 bb)
David Carpenter – Eliminated in 12th place ($1,424)
