Josias Santos

Josias Santos opened on the button and was called by Abraham Hichman, who defended his big blind. The flop came {2-Spades}{j-Spades}{8-Spades} and Hichman checked to Santos, who made a continuation-bet of 165,000. Hichman check-jammed to put Santos to a decision for the rest of his chips and Santos balked for a moment before deciding to call it all off.

Josias Santos: {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}
Abraham Hichman: {k-Spades}{3-Spades}

Despite flopping top set, Santos was behind Hichman's king-high flush. He needed the board to pair to stay alive and it did not as the turn {9-Hearts} and river {3-Clubs} completed the runout to result in his elimination from the tournament in 15th place.
