After the three remaining players sat near even in chips, a pair of back-to-back hands have put Matt Grapenthien on the short stack.

First, versus Charles Sinn with boards reading:

Matt Grapenthien: {x-}{x-}/{10-}{4-}{q-}{j-}
Charles Sinn: {x-}{x-}/ {7-}{2-}{9-}{8-}

Grapenthien called bets from Sinn on fourth and fifth streets. Bradley Ruben, who had also called a bet on fourth, folded on fifth.

On sixth street, Sinn continued to improve against Grapenthien, who was forced to fold to another bet.

On the following hand, Grapenthien faced off against just Ruben.

By sixth street, their boards read:

Matt Grapenthien: {x-}{x-}/{8-}{7-}{9-}{q-}
Bradley Ruben: {x-}{x-}/{10-}{3-}{4-}{9-}

Grapenthien bet on fourth street with his eight-seven and was called by Ruben, who took the betting lead on fifth and sixth streets after improving his board on both streets.

Grapenthien called on fifth, but folded on sixth after catching the queen, leaving himself with half of what he had in chips just two hands before.
