Rocco Palumbo opened to 60,000 from the cutoff and action folded around to Kevin Elia in the big blind, who made the call.

The flop came {Q-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{7-Clubs} and Elia pushed all in a bit over 500,000. Palumbo quickly called and hands were revealed.

Elia: {Q-Spades}{10-Clubs} for top pair with a flush draw.
Palumbo: {K-Clubs}{Q-Hearts} for both a superior kicker and flush draw.

Elia was in bad shape and the {9-Hearts} turn and {3-Diamonds} river sealed Elia's fate for a 6th-place finish.

Palumbo is chip leader with 3.6 million.
