Michael Tait got it all in from the button for about 1,100,000 with AcJc, and he needed to improve to stay alive against the KsKh of David Shmuel, who was under the gun.

The board came Kd7c3s8c6d, and Shmuel flopped a set of kings to win the pot and eliminate Tait in fifth place.

David Shmuel  –  3,375,000  (34 bb)
Michael Tait  –  Eliminated in 5th Place  ($3,974)
