James Sebastiano raised from the cutoff to 30,000, and Kevin Pham reraised from the button to 80,000. Alex Ziskin called from the big blind, and Sebastiano four-bet all in for 375,000. Pham asked for an exact count and tanked for a while before he folded.

Ziskin called all in for about 120,000 with AcQh, but he needed to improve to stay alive against Sebastiano’s KsKc.

The board came 9h6s6dKh5s, and Sebastiano turned a full house, kings full of sixes, to win the pot and eliminate Ziskin in fifth place.

Since this is a bounty tournament, Sebastiano earned $200 for the knockout.

James Sebastiano  –  590,000  (59 bb)
Alex Ziskin  –  Eliminated in 5th Place  ($1,755)

With four players remaining, the average chip stack is around 425,000 (43 big blinds), and the remaining players are guaranteed at least $2,300 each.
