Hand #46: Jesse Sylvia moved all in from the button and [Removed:17] quickly folded the small blind. Mike Leah was in the big and thought for about 30 seconds before making the call.

Sylvia: {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}
Leah: {k-Spades}{3-Spades}

The {4-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{4-Spades} flop kept the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event runner-up firmly in the lead, but then disaster struck when the dealer burned and turned the {K-Diamonds}. Leah became a dominating favorite, and suddenly Sylvia needed one of the two remaining fives on the river to stay alive. The dealer burned one last time and put out the {K-Hearts}. The repeat king improved Leah to a full house and Sylvia took his leave in third place to a nice round of applause.
