William Jennings raised UTG/hijack to 325,000, Salvatore Sollecito called from the cutoff, and Ross Lebo called from the big blind.

The flop came 10c5s4c, and Sollecito got it all in for 1,050,000 with Ac2c (flush draw with a gutshot straight draw). Lebo had 10s8s for a pair of tens, and Jennings folded, saying later that he had ace-queen.

The turn card was the Jc, the river card was the 3c, and Sollecito turned his club flush to win the pot and double up in chips.

Salvatore Sollecito  –  3,300,000  (22 bb)
Ross Lebo  –  1,450,000  (10 bb)

Juan Endara raised from the button to 400,000, Ross Lebo moved all in for 1,125,000, and Endara checked his own chipleading stack and thought for a bit before he put in his chips and said, “I don’t want to call. I don’t like to call. But I have to call.”

Lebo showed Kh8h, and Endara turned over Kd3s. Lebo was in a dominant position to double up here.

The board came Ah7d3h3c2d — Lebo flopped a heart flush draw, but Endara paired his three on the flop and turned trips to win the pot and eliminate Lebo in fifth place.

Juan Endara  –  7,400,000  (49 bb)
Ross Lebo  –  Eliminated in 5th Place  ($6,739)
