Vanessa Selbst - Eliminated

David Sands opened to 64,000 from the hijack seat, and Vanessa Selbst called in the cutoff. The flop fell {j-Clubs}{4-Spades}{2-Clubs}, Sands led out for 84,000, and Selbst raised to 233,000. Sands called.

The turn was the {q-Clubs}, Sands checked, and Selbst fired 347,000. Sands called.

The river was the {5-Clubs}, and Sands checked again. Selbst moved all in for 1.2 million, and Sands instantly snapped it off.

Selbst showed {7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} for just a pair of fives, but Sands had that crushed with {a-Clubs}{2-Spades} for an ace-high flush. Selbst is out, while Sands now has a barn-sized chip lead with 5.6 million chips.

The players are now on a 15-minute break.
