Wilmer Chavira got it all in from the hijack for 380,000 with AdKd, and he needed it to hold to stay alive against the AsJc of David Ray, who was under the gun.

Ray called for a jack, and the flop came KcJs7c, giving both players a pair, with Chavira still in the lead.

Another player told Ray, “You needed to be more specific.”

The turn card was the 10d, the river card was the 6s, and Chavira won the pot with a pair of kings to double up in chips.

Wilmer Chavira  –  835,000  (28 bb)
David Ray  –  50,000  (2 bb)

The next hand, Ray was forced all in, with 30,000 for the ante and 20,000 as his big blind. Everyone folded to Lisa Levy, who called from the small blind with AcJd.

Ray was dominated with Jc8d, but flopped two pair on a board of Js8s5c6cQc to not-quite-double up in chips.

David Ray  –  70,000  (2 bb)
Lisa Levy  –  460,000  (15 bb)

The next hand, Deonarine Itwaru raised under the gun to 75,000, Ray called all in from the small blind, and Wilmer Chavira called from the big blind.

Chavira and Itwaru checked to the turn on a board of KdQd5s3s. Chavira checked, Itwaru bet 100,000, and Chavira folded. Itwaru took the side pot.

For the main pot, Ray showed Ad5h for a pair of fives, but Itwaru turned over AhKc for a pair of kings. Ray was dominated, and he needed one of the two remaining fives to stay alive.

The river card was the Kh, and Itwaru won the pot with trip kings to eliminate Ray in sixth place.

Deonarine Itwaru  –  1,350,000  (45 bb)
David Ray  –  Eliminated in 6th Place  ($3,690)

With five players remaining, the average chip stack is about 705,000 (24 big blinds), and the next player to be eliminated will earn $4,445 for fifth place.
