Lev Zerkal

In the very next hand after Matthew Wantman was eliminated in sixth place (no small blind this hand), Lev Zerkal (UTG) and Isaac Kempton (big blind) saw a flop of 10h10c9s.

Zerkal got it all in for about 190,000 after the flop, and they turned over their cards.

Isaac Kempton:  KdQdJh5h  (wrap straight draw)
Lev Zerkal:  Jc9d5d5c  (two pair, tens and nines)

The turn card was the 8d, the river card was the 3h, and Kempton turned a queen-high straight to win the pot and eliminate Zerkal in fifth place.

Isaac Kempton  –  1,350,000  (34 bb)
Lev Zerkal  –  Eliminated in 5th Place  ($83,486)
