Davidi Kitai Eliminated in 5th Place ($92,064)

Davidi Kitai - 4th place
Davidi Kitai - 4th place

It took a monster pot and a man from Japan to oust one of the favorites for this title, Davidi Kitai.

Kitai opened to 60,000 from under the gun and Naoya Kihara three-bet to 210,000. Kitai wasn't to be removed and raised the pot. This took a few minutes and about ten people to figure out it was up to 660,000. Kihara surprised a lot of people by just calling.

The flop came down {9-Hearts}{8-Spades}{4-Diamonds} and Kihara shoved for 750,000. Kitai snap-called off his remaining 645,000.

Kihara: {10-Spades}{9-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}.
Kitai: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}.

The turn came {7-Hearts} giving both players the same straight. Kihara was free-rolling to a better straight though. He needed a ten and that's what he got as the river came {10-Clubs} to give him the winning straight. Kitai looked as if he'd just been stabbed in the heart.
