There were three players that saw a {6-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} flop for 2,962 a piece. Action was checked to "camkite21" who continued for 4,345 from the hijack and Giovanni John7012" Balistreri raised to 9,150 from the big blind.

Only "camkite21" called to see the {8-Diamonds} turn and both players checked bringing the {j-Clubs} river. "camkite21" led out for 18,714 and then called the 48,049 all in raise from Balistreri.

"camkite21": {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}
Giovanni "John7012" Balistreri: {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}

Top pair was no good for Balistreri as "camkite21" held pocket kings to eliminate him from the tournament.
