Evgeni Tourevski raised from early position and was three-bet by Sandy Sanchez on the button. Action folded back around to Tourevski, who called.

Tourevski led out on the {3-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} flop and Sanchez called.

Tourevski bet again on the {10-Spades} turn and Sanchez raised, which was enough to put Tourevski all in. Tourevski called and tabled {9-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}. Sanchez held the {a-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{a-Spades}{8-Diamonds}.

The {a-Hearts} completed the board and Sanchez took down the pot with aces full and Tourevski was eliminated in 13th place.

Board: {8-Spades}{2-Spades}{a-Hearts}{3-Spades}{10-Spades}

Scott Vietzer: {8-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}
Carl Lijewski: {a-Spades}{4-Spades}{8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}

The action went four way to the flop, with Scott Veitzer all-in for 135,000 chips.

On the flop, Pearce Arnold checked, as did Scott Baumstein, but Carl Lijewski fired one out. Both Arnold and Baumstein called.

On the turn, the action went the same way, except Baumstein bowed out.

The river saw Lijewski fire one last time. Arnold had seen enough and mucked his hand. Lijewski tabled the scoop and Veitzer headed to the payout desk to claim his 14th place prize.
