John Cernuto - 5th Place

Action folded to "Miami" John Cernuto in the small blind. He raised the pot, and Ashly Butler immediately slid out a stack of green chips to indicate he was putting Cernuto all in. Cernuto called.

Cernuto: {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{5-Spades}
Butler: {k-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}

The flop was {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{5-Hearts}, keeping Cernuto in the lead with two pair, but giving Butler a low draw and a wheel draw. A {j-Diamonds} on the turn changed nothing.

"Just pair the board," Cernuto growled.

Instead, the dealer placed the {4-Clubs} down, which gave Butler a straight and the nut low, eliminating Cernuto in fifth.
