Michael Ross - 4th Place
Michael Ross - 4th Place

Michael Ross opened for a raise under the gun and was called by Benjamin Berlowski on the button. Ross bet 110,000 on the {q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{5-Hearts} flop, and Berlowski called. An {a-Diamonds} hit the turn, and Ross fired 250,000. Berlowski raised to 700,000. Ross took a deep breath and capped his cards.

"I'm just trying to figure out how much I have," he said, counting his stack. "Yeah, I'm all in."

Berlowski snap-called, turning the {5-Diamonds}{5-Spades}, his second set of fives in a key pot this tournament. This time, he had more outs to fade as he was against {a-Hearts}{8-Hearts} top pair and the nut heart draw. Ross clenched his fists as the river card dropped, but it was the {6-Spades}, no help.
