Blinds 30,000/60,000/7,500

Ronald "rlksaces" Keren raised to 120,000 from middle position and called when Gershon "jets613" Distenfeld three-bet all in for 233,985 from the button.

Gershon "jets613" Distenfeld: {6-Hearts}{q-Hearts}
Ronald "rlksaces" Keren: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}

The {j-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{a-Clubs} flop gave Keren top set and left Distenfeld looking for running queens to stay alive. That didn't happen though as the {7-Clubs} turn left him drawing dead, while the {3-Spades} river sent him packing in 38th place for $1,639.89.

Shannon "aulophobia" Shorr open-jammed under the gun for 73,086 and Lenny "scaryzombie" Kushnirsky isolated after three-betting to 446,402 from the hijack.

Shannon "aulophobia" Shorr: {j-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}
Lenny "scaryzombie" Kushnirsky: {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}

Shorr was behind holding two overs but the {5-Spades}{6-Hearts}{2-Hearts} flop gave Kushnirsky a set of fives.

The {q-Hearts} turn did give Shorr a little hope with the heart flush draw but the {10-Clubs} river ended his tournament in 48th place for $1,424.
