Jay Kerbel raised to 60,000, David Shmuel three-bet 90,000, Kerbel four-bet all in for about 105,000, and Shmuel called.

Kerbel:  Qc9c9d3c
Shmuel:   AhQd7d2s

The flop was QhQs5d, giving both trip queens, but Shmuel’s ace kicker had him in the lead.

The 8d turn kept Shmuel ahead, and the 4d river further improved Shmuel to a queen-high flush and the nut low to clinch the Event 5 victory outright for $12,025, his seventh SHRP major series win.

Kerbel finished runner-up for 7,725.

A recap of the event will be published later tonight.
