Congratulations to Tyler Kenney, WPT Legends of Poker 3rd Place Finisher ($213,600)

Check out the continued coverage on @WPTlive and on the World Poker Tour site!
3rd) Tyler Kenney ($213,600)

(Hand #104) Level 31: 60,000-120,000, 20,000 ante

Tyler Kenney min-raises from the button to 240,000, Mike Eskandari reraises from the small blind to 760,000, and Kenney tanks for nearly a minute before he moves all in for 3,535,000.
Eskandari snap-calls with 7diamond7spade, and Kenney turns over Aspade2diamond. Kenney needs to improve to stay alive.

The board comes Jheart9club5heart3diamond9diamond, and the pocket sevens hold up for Eskandari to win the pot and eliminate Tyler in third place.

Congratulations to Taylor McFarland, WPT Legends of Poker 4th Place Finisher ($145,640)

Check out the continued coverage on @WPTlive and on the World Poker Tour site!

(4th) Taylor McFarland ($145,640)
Hand #66: Level 30: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Tyler Cornell moves all in for 1,000,000, Harry Arutyunyan calls from the button (using a single 1M plaque), and Taylor McFarland moves all in over the top for 1,310,000.

Arutyunyan calls, and they turn up their cards (listed in descending order of chip counts):

Harry Arutyunyan:  Adiamond10spade
Taylor McFarland:  QclubQspade
Tyler Cornell:  KheartJspade

The board comes Aheart9heart3club2diamond2club, and Arutyunyan pairs his ace on the flop to win the entire pot and eliminate two players in one hand.

Cornell had fewer chips at the start of the hand than McFarland, so he finishes in fifth place, and McFarland finishes fourth.

Seat 1.  Harry Arutyunyan  -  5,625,000  (56 bb)
Seat 2.  Taylor McFarland  -  Out in 4th Place  ($145,640)
Seat 4.  Tyler Kenney  -  4,335,000  (43 bb)
Seat 5.  Mike Eskandari  -  8,990,000  (89 bb)
Seat 6.  Tyler Cornell  -  Out in 5th Place  ($103,075)

Action pauses for a couple minutes for exit interviews after the three-way all-in situation resulted in the elimination of two players.
