Steven Goldberg- 7th Place

Action folded around to Steven Goldberg in the small blind, and he raised it up to 95,000. Donald Vogel defended his big blind, and the dealer fanned out a flop of {5-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{3-Spades}. Goldberg led out for 75,000, and Vogel quickly called. The turn was the {a-Hearts}, and this time, Goldberg fired out 145,000. Vogel tanked for about 30 seconds before announcing all in. Goldberg called off his remaining stack, and he was at risk and behind.

Goldberg: {a-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}
Vogel: {a-Spades}{5-Clubs}

Vogel was in the lead, but he would have to dodge the straight and flush draw outs of Goldberg. He was able to do just that, as the river brought the {9-Spades}. Vogel collected the chips, while Goldberg heads over to the payout desk to collect his near $85,000.

With Goldberg's elimination, we have reach the six-figure payday plateau.
