Yu Kurita Eliminated in 5th Place (AU$27,624)

Yu Kurita - 5th Place

Hand #69: Phil Hellmuth raised to 11,000 from the cutoff only to have Michael Tran three-bet to 50,000 from the small blind. Tran seemed focused on Hellmuth's small stack, but he turned his attention to his left when Yu Kurita four-bet jammed from the big blind for 115,500 more.

"I don't think I can fold," Tran said after Hellmuth had gotten out of the way. Tran then dropped in a call.

Tran: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}
Kurita: {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}

It was a flip, and Kurita was looking to hold to double. The {10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds} flop gave Tran the lead with a pair of aces, but all hope was not lost as Kurita flopped a flush draw. The {K-Hearts} turn improved Tran to two pair, but it also have Kurita an added Broadway draw. Unfortunately for her, she missed all her outs when the {A-Spades} appeared on the river, a card that actually improved Tran to a full house.
