Jeremy Ausmus shakes hands with Jesse Sylvia. Ausmus was busted in 5th place by Sylvia.

Hand #129:

Jeremy Ausmus had the button, and opened to 1.2 million. Jesse Sylvia defended his big blind, and the flop fell {3-Spades}{8-Spades}{9-Clubs}. Both players checked.

The turn was the {3-Diamonds}, Sylvia checked, Ausmus fired 1.5 million, and Sylvia check-raised to 3.6 million. Ausmus tanked, then moved all in for around 14.5 million. Sylvia instantly called.

Ausmus: {10-Spades}{7-Diamonds}
Sylvia: {a-Clubs}{9-Hearts}

The spectators in the Penn & Teller Theater rose to their feet when the cards were turned over, Ausmus' rail calling for a six or a jack, and Sylvia's rail yelling "Hold!"

Sylvia held as the {5-Spades} spiked on the river, and his rail erupted. Ausmus will take home $2,155,313 for his fifth-place finish.
