Iakov Nepomnyashchiy raised from under the gun, and received a call from Justin Pechie as well as Eric Crain. William Soffin in the big blind then two bet. All players called, and four of the five players left at Table 289 got to see a {2-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} flop. Nepomnyashchiy bet again and received a call from Pechie. Short stacked Soffin made the call and was all in.

With the {2-} on the turn Nepomnyashchiy bet and was all in. Pechie said "that's a big pot" and made the call.

Pechi: {K-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Nepomnyashchiy: {K-Spades}{2-Spades}
Soffin: unknown

Soffin never flipped his cards and simply threw them in the muck, and was eliminated. Pechie would need a king on the river in order to simply chop the pot. He received no such luck as the {q-Hearts} rolled off the deck for the river.
