Mark Smith (small blind) and Oscar Trestini (under the gun) were involved in a heads-up pot on a 7s6s4s flop. Smith led out with a bet, Trestini raised, and Smith called, leaving about 25,000 chips behind.

The turn was the Ad. Smith checked, Trestini moved all in, and Smith committed the remainder of his stack to put himself at risk.

Trestini: KsJs
Smith: AsTh

Trestini had flopped a king-high flush, but Smith was drawing live to a superior ace-high flush. The river was the blank 8c, though, and Smith could not catch up. Trestini won the pot, sending Smith to the payout desk in sixth place.

Oscar Trestini – 310,000 (78 bb)
Mark Smith – Eliminated
