Vadim Kostenko (left) is eliminated by John Cernuto (middle) and Stewart Yancik (right) survives

Stewart Yancik raised all in from under the gun for 80,000, Vadim Kostenko reraised all in from the small blind for 180,000 and “Miami” John Cernuto called from the big blind.

Yancik: 9h8d3h2s
Kostenko: Ac8s6c4c
Cernuto: AhJsJc3d

The flop was a beauty for Cernuto, coming down Jh2d5s to give him a set of jacks and the nut low draw.

The 10h turn, however, gave Yancik flush and straight outs.

The river was the 7s, giving Yancik a jack-high straight to win half of the main pot, while Cernuto’s nut low and set of jacks scooped the side pot to eliminate Kostenko in fifth place.

John Cernuto – 1,250,000 (42 bb)
Stewart Yancik – 120,000 (4 bb)
Vadim Kostenko – Eliminated in 5th Place ($3,640)
