George Zinaty Eliminated in 5th Place ($64,303)

Shamus • Level 32: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante
George Zinaty - 5th Place

After Raymond Weaver limped from the button and Kory Kilpatrick called from the small blind, George Zinaty raised all in for his last 410,000 from the big blind and both Weaver and Kilpatrick called.

The two remaining players both checked following the {4-Hearts}{A-Spades}{4-Spades} flop. The turn brought the {10-Diamonds} and another check from Kilpatrick, and he mucked his hand even before Weaver's bet of 200,000 had landed in front of him.

Weaver then flipped over his hand — {A-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}! "That's a very good hand," deadpanned a standing Zinaty as he showed {10-Spades}{2-Spades}.

Zinaty wasn't drawing completely dead as another ten could give him a better full house than Weaver's. But the river was the {7-Spades}, and the flush did Zinaty no good, sending "Salon George" out in fifth place.
