MrCleverFox • Level 26: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante
Nikolai Sears

Hand #15: David Pham raised to 65,000 and took down the pot.

Hand #16: Nikolai Sears opened to 65,000 from the button. Matt Berkey reraised all in from the small blind. Pham folded his big blind and with action back on Sears, he made the quick call.

Sears: {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}
Berkey: {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}

Berkey was behind but his rail exploded upon seeing the {J-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} flop.

"Eight of spades!" they screamed. They screamed even louder when it was the {8-Diamonds} on the turn. Berkey just needed to dodge a {10-} to score the elimination and secure himself fourth place pay.

"Deuce!" the rail screamed. And they got their wish as the {2-Clubs} came on the river securing Nikolai Sear's elimination in 5th place.
