Andy Edgington raised under the gun to 50,000, Joseph Grimes called from the hijack, Daniel Pearlman called from the small blind, and Brian Gelrod called from the big blind.

The flop came 5d3h2s, and Pearlman bet 25,000. Gelrod called, and Edgington called all in for 8,000. Grimes folded. Edgington was all in, while Pearlman and Gelrod had an additional side pot worth 34,000 between them.

The turn card was the 7c, Pearlman bet 50,000, Gelrod raised, and Pearlman called all in for 51,000. All three players turned over their cards:

Byron Hubert:  Ad6d4d2h  (wheel)
Brian Gelrod:  AcJh5s2c  (wheel draw)
Andy Edgington:  AhJd10c7h  (drawing dead)

The river card was the 3d, and Hubert scooped the entire pot with his wheel, doubling thru Gelrod and eliminating Edgington in fifth place.

Byron Hubert  –  360,000  (7 BB)
Brian Gelrod  –  180,000  (4 BB)
Andy Edgington  –  Eliminated in 5th Place  ($2,120)

With four players remaining, the average chip stack is about 290,000 (6 Big Bets), and they are guaranteed at least $2,900 each.
