Dror Michaelo - Eliminated in 5th Place

The action folded to Kirk Caldwell who made in 90,000 in the small blind. Dror Michaelo defended his big blind, and the flop came down {a-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}. Both players checked.

The turn was the {4-Diamonds}, and Caldwell led for 285,000. Michaelo instantly moved all in for nearly a million chips, and Caldwell snapped it off!!!

Caldwell: {a-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}
Michaelo: {k-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

The river card was not a king, rather it was the {9-Diamonds} to give Caldwell the nut-flush for kicks. Michaelo was eliminated in 5th place, earning him $154,506, while Caldwell is nearing 5 million chips - a whopping 166 big blinds.
