For the second time in a row, Elliot Smith slid out a bet of a million from the small blind into Daniel Laidlaw's big blind. Laidlaw looked down at his hand and announced he was all in. Smith quickly called.
The board ran out and, although Laidlaw flopped a flush draw, the turn and river bricked out and the Aussie was eliminated in third place. Laidlaw earned HK$1,724,000 for his efforts.
