Jay Kerbel raised under the gun to 40,000, and A.J. Kelsall called from the big blind.

The flop came KsKd9c, Kelsall bet 20,000, Kerbel raised, and Kelsall called all in for a little bit more.

Jay Kerbel:  AdAsQs5d  (two pair, aces and kings)
A.J. Kelsall:  AhJh8h8s  (two pair, kings and eights)

There could be no qualifying lows on this board, and Kerbel had the lead with a higher two pair. Kelsall needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the 4d, the river card was the 7s, and Kerbel won the pot with his pocket aces to eliminate Kelsall in sixth place.

Jay Kerbel  –  825,000  (21 bb)
A.J. Kelsall  –  Eliminated in 6th Place  ($1,815)

With five players remaining, the average chip stack is around 310,000 (8 Big Bets), and they are all guaranteed at least $2,140 each.
