Michael Tait limped from middle position for 400, the player in the hijack raised to 1,600, and Tony Sinishtaj reraised from the button to 5,000. Tait and the hijack both called.

The flop came 5x4x3x with two hearts, and it checked to Sinishtaj, who bet another 5,000. Tait check-raised to 15,000, the hijack folded, and Sinishtaj moved all in for about 35,000.

Tait called with KxKx, and Sinishtaj turned over QxQx, needing to improve.

The turn card was a 9x, the river card was a Kx, and Tait won the pot with an unnecessary set of kings to eliminate Sinishtaj.

Michael Tait  –  115,000  (230 bb)
Tony Sinishtaj  –  Eliminated
