Hand #1: Satoshi Tanaka opened on the button to 350,000 and Martin Zamani announced a re-shove all in. Tanaka asked how much and Zamani said about 4.3 million, a figure close to Tanaka's. Tanaka wasted no further time calling.
Diamonds ran amok as the board came to give Zamani the pot, leaving Tanaka drawing dead on the turn. Zamani's stack was totaled to be 4.505 million, just shy of Tanaka's to leave him on fumes.
Hand #2: On the following hand, Tanaka shoved and once again received action from Zamani.
More diamonds spelled the end of Tanaka's night as the runout came to once again give Zamani a flush. Both players laughed at the runout.
"Good game, dude," said Zamani jovially. Tanaka received it equally well and the table congratulated him on a hard-fought fifth-place finish. With his elimination, the tournament director just told the four remaining players that the ante value will be switched to that of a small blind for short-handed play through the duration of the tournament.
