Things escalated quickly on the {k-Spades}{a-Hearts}{5-Spades}{8-Spades} turn. Michael Gathy bet before Verel instantly moved all-in and Gathy put the chips in just as fast.

Philip Verel: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}
Michael Gathy: {q-Spades}{9-Spades}

Verel held a set of aces, but Gathy had turned the queen-high flush. Verel was looking for the board to pair or another spade, but it was not to be as the river fell the {4-Hearts}, and the Day 3 chip leader was eliminated.

It was a fantastic run for Verel, who was a relative unknown at the WSOP. He collects a nice payday for his efforts.

Meanwhile, four-time bracelet winner Michael Gathy moves into the chip lead.
