David Moreno

After a flop of Qh5d2s with 41K in the pot, Lewe Thiesen checked the big blind, and David Moreno checked behind from the cutoff.

The turn card was the Kh, Thiesen checked, Moreno bet 20,000, and Thiesen check-pot-raised to 101,000. Moreno moved all in for 151,000, and Thiesen quickly called.

Lewe Thiesen:  AsQd4h3s  (pair of queens, wrap draw)
David Moreno:  AhKcJc5h  (pair of kings, heart flush draw, gutshot straight draw)

The river card was the 8s, and Moreno won the pot with his pair of kings to double up in chips. It was the second double-up for Moreno in the span of 10 minutes.

David Moreno  –  500,000  (83 bb)
Lewe Thiesen  –  343,000  (57 bb)

With five players remaining, the average chip stack is around 308,000 (51 big blinds), and the next player to be eliminated will earn $4,815 for fifth place.
