Frank Stepuchin

Frank Stepuchin limped in the cutoff and Freddy Deeb raised to 1,120,000 in the small blind. Stepuchin called.

The flop came {8-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} and Deeb moved all in, covering his opponent.

"I almost flopped quads," said Stepuchin who threw in a time extension before ultimately calling.

Freddy Deeb: {a-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}
Frank Stepuchin: {5-Spades}{5-Clubs}

Deeb had flopped top pair and there was to be no miracle five on the {k-Spades}{10-Spades} runout and the start of day chip leader was eliminated.
