Shaun Deeb Eliminated in 5th Place ($289,880)

Shaun Deeb - 5th Place

Vanessa Selbst raised to 75,000 from the small bind with {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}, Shaun Deeb called in the big blind with {a-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}, and the flop fell {10-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Clubs}. Selbst led out for 60,000, and Deeb raised to 208,000. Selbst re-raised to 465,000, Deeb moved all in for 1.567 million, and Selbst tanked for close to three minutes before calling.

"I leveled myself into calling," Selbst sighed once she saw Deeb's hand.

The {9-Clubs} turned, and Deeb was one card away from shipping a massive double. The dealer rapped the table one final time, then delivered the river card.

It was the {k-Diamonds}.

Selbst looked shocked - appalled even - and immediately reached out to apologize to the fifth-place finisher. He shrugged it off, and the two walked off of the stage to talk.

"Sorry man," she told Deeb. "That's ridiculous. I was just clicking buttons."

Deeb once again forgave her, but we're sure he'll be thinking about this hand for a long time.

Selbst now has a massive lead with over five million chips.
