"Darwinsfish" Eliminated in 5th Place ($39,290)

"Darwinsfish" eliminated in 5th place

Just moments ago, "Darwinsfish" was so close to a huge four-handed lead after flopping a straight flush draw, but was left with just 14 big blinds after bricking it. After folding some hands, he had a little under ten big blinds left and those went in first to act.

From the small blind, Rinat "Zapahzamazki" Lyapin looked him up.

"Darwinsfish": {a-Clubs}{3-Clubs}
Rinat "Zapahzamazki" Lyapin: {4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}

The {j-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{4-Clubs} flop all but sealed it for Lyapin, although the {10-Hearts} turn opened up a straight possibility. The {j-Clubs} river slammed that door shut and "Darwinsfish" was gone in fifth.
