Manig Loeser:  Ah10h
Franklin Fok:  QhJh

The board came Jd5d3h5s4s, and Fok paired his jack on the flop to win the pot and double up in chips.

Franklin Fok  –  530,000  (27 bb)
Manig Loeser  –  100,000  (5 bb)

HAND #28  –  Manig Loeser raised button to 95,000, leaving himself just 5,000 behind, and Jason Mercier called from the big blind and showed As8d, thinking Loeser was all in.

Mercier bet 5,000 in the dark to put Loeser all in, and the flop came 8c5d2d, giving Mercier top pair with top kicker.

Loeser called with Kd9d for a diamond flush draw, and he needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the 4s, the river card is the Qs, and Mercier won the pot with his pair of eights to eliminate Loeser in fifth place. Mercier now has more than 65% of all the chips in play.

Jason Mercier  –  3,370,000  (169 bb)
Manig Loeser  –  Eliminated in 5th Place  ($139,195)

The final four players are guaranteed at least $198,850 each.
