Luke Brereton raised to 3,500 from under the gun, Viktor Kovachev called in the cutoff, Jack Sumner called on the button and Steven Wolansky three-bet to 16,500 from the small blind. Only Kovachev called.

The flop was 3hJs2s, Wolansky continued for 10,000, Kovachev raised to 28,000, Wolansky reraised all in for 80,000 and Kovachev called.

Wolansky:  KhKc
Kovachev:  As4s

The turn was the 5c, giving Kovachev a wheel to lock up the hand, rendering the Qd river moot.

Steven Wolansky  –  Eliminated
