Neil Patel collects his winnings after tripling up at the 8-Max final table. 

All-ins continue to dominate the Event 53 final table and Neil Patel is its newest chip leader after tripling up through Andrei Konopelko and Darlene Lee.

Lee opened to 250,000 under the gun and Patel jammed for 1,530,000 on her direct left. Konopelko called out of the small blind and Lee tanked for two minutes before calling as well.

Konopelko checked the 66♠4♦ flop and Lee shoved all-in. Konopelko released and Lee exposed 1010♠. Patel had her one-upped with J♣J and held through the 4♠ turn and 8♣ river to secure the pot.

Patel is now the chip leader with 4,800,000 with Konopelko (3,865,000) and Lee (3,425,000) trailing his stack.
