Dan Heimiller limped in under the gun, and three players came along with him to the flop, including Arthur Rodriguez in the small blind.

The flop was 5d4s3d. The blinds checked, Heimiller bet 10,000, and the opponent in position called. That put the action back on Rodriguez, and he check-raised to 35,000. Heimiller was the only caller, and it was heads-up to the turn. It was the 9d. Rodriguez moved all in for about 240,000 total, and Heimiller instantly called, having his opponent very slightly covered. Rodriguez was at risk, and the news was not good.

Rodriguez: 2d6d
Heimiller: AdQd

Rodriguez flopped a straight and a flush draw, but Heimiller’s turned flush had his opponent drawing dead to one out. The river was the blank Qc, and Heimiller won the pot with the nut flush. Rodriguez was eliminated in seventh place.

Dan Heimiller – 580,000 (145 bb)
Arthur Rodriguez – Eliminated
