Level 8

Stephen Chidwick limped the button, Brian Rast called from the small blind and Chris Vitch checked the big blind. The dealer spread out {2-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs} on the flop.

Rast led for 10,500, Vitch raised to 25,000, Chidwick folded and Rast moved his last 28,000 into the middle. Vitch called and turned over {3-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{8-Spades}{10-Clubs} for a pair and flush draw. Rast showed {a-Spades}{9-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{6-Clubs} for top pair and a straight draw.

The {a-Clubs} hit on the turn, putting Vitch in the lead with his flush. A {2-Hearts} on the river changed nothing as Vitch took down the pot, eliminating Rast from the tournament.
