David Shmuel limped from the hijack for 12,000, Aaron Schaff limped from the cutoff, Phil Hui limped from the button, Tony Cousineau completed the small blind, and Colby Covington checked his option in the big blind.

The flop came Jc4h3h, and it checked to Schaff, who pot-bet 60,000. Hui, Cousineau, and Covington all folded, and Shmuel raised.

Schaff called all in for 67,000, and they turned over their cards.

David Schmuel:  AsQc9h2c  (4-3 low draw)
Aaron Schaff:  Ac10c5c4s  (pair of fours, wrap wheel draw)

The turn card was the Qs, the river card was the Ah, and neither player made a qualifying low. Schmuel caught a runner-runner two pair, aces and queens, to win the pot and eliminate Schaff in sixth place.

David Shmuel  –  500,000  (42 bb)
Aaron Schaff  –  Eliminated in 6th Place  ($4,075)
