Dominick Sannino moved all in from the cutoff for 140,000, Manny Tarich moved all in over the top from the button for 529,000, and both blinds folded.

Sannino turned over As9h, but he was dominated by Tarich’s AcKd.

The board came Qc10s8c6d8d — Sannino flopped a gutshot straight draw and turned a double-gutshot, but missed his outs on the river. Tarich won the pot with his king kicker to eliminate Sannino in fifth place.

The levels are one hour long at this final table, and it took about 30 minutes to get to the first all-in situation.

Viktor Kovachev raised under the gun to 20,000, Jason Nablo called from the cutoff, and Artem Zverkhovskyy moved all in from the button for 138,000. Kovachev called, and Nablo thought for a while before folding and flashing what looked like a mid-range pocket pair.

Zverkhovskyy turned over AsJs, but he was dominated by Kovachev’s AcQs.

The board came 10d6s4s7hJc, and Zverkhovskyy spiked a jack on the river to win the pot and double up in chips.

Seat 1.  Manny Tarich  –  535,000  (67 bb)
Seat 2.  Viktor Kovachev  –  210,000  (26 bb)

About 15 minutes later, Jason Nablo (big blind) and Manny Tarich (button) saw a flop of Js9c5h. Nablo checked, Tarich bet 21,000, and Nablo called.

The turn card was the Qs, Nablo checked, Tarich bet 58,000, and Nablo called.

The river card was the 3s, Nablo checked, and Tarich said, “Did you make a backdoor flush on me?” Tarich checked and showed 10d8d for a queen-high straight.

Nablo said, “You should have bet,” and he flashed two pair before throwing them into the muck.

Manny Tarich  –  640,000  (80 bb)
Jason Nablo  –  560,000  (70 bb)

Level 18 came to an end, and Level 19 began with increased blinds of 5,000-10,000 with a 10,000 ante.

In the second hand of the new level, Artem Zverkhovskyy raised from the cutoff to 30,000, Manny Tarich reraised from the small blind to 90,000, and Zverkhovskyy called.

The flop came 7d4d4h, Tarich bet 100,000, and Zverkhovskyy tanked for a while before he folded. Tarich took the pot.

After the hand, Tarich said, “I don’t mind telling you. I had queens.”

Zverkhovskyy pumped his fist in a small celebration and then said, “I had red jacks.”

Seat 1.  Manny Tarich  –  695,000  (87 bb)
Seat 2.  Viktor Kovachev  –  480,000  (48 bb)
Seat 3.  Jason Nablo  –  610,000  (61 bb)
