James Scott moved all in from under the gun for 200,000 and Manuel Jo called out of the small blind. Chris Zito moved all in for 450,000 out of the big blind and Jo folded.

Zito showed KhKc and was in the lead against Scott’s QhJh.

The board came AhQd2cJc6c and Scott doubled up after turning queens and jacks, leaving Zito with just 250,000.

A couple hands later, Zito moved all in on the button for 200,000 and Alfredo Fernandez called out of the big blind.

Fernandez showed 4h3s and was up against Zito’s AsQs. The flop was Ah6h5s, giving Zito top pair, but Fernandez was open-ended.

The turn was the 6d, keeping Zito in the lead, but the river was the 7h, giving Fernandez a straight and sending Zito home in fourth place for $4,916.
