Jason Rovner was the leader at the last break but nothing went well for him from that point forward. He dropped a bit and then went to battle with Min Ng. Rovner opened from the cutoff and Ng moved all in from the small blind for 1,240,000. Rovner called and ran into a big hand.
Rovner needed to catch to send the tournament down to four players but the queens held on the board to send Ng a big double. Rovner was left with under 300,000 but managed one double up before Diane LePara sent him out in fifth place.
