Hand #76: Under the gun, Dana Castaneda raised to 150,000. From the small blind, Michael Zucchet reraised to 375,000. Castaneda just flat called the bet when action folded back to her. On the {7-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{A-Spades} flop, Zucchet led for 365,000. Castaneda called. The turn came the {5-Diamonds}. Zucchet moved all in and Castaneda called.

Castaneda: {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
Zucchet: {q-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}

Castaneda was ahead, but Zucchet could still pick up the pot with any nine or four to complete his straight. The river fell the {8-Hearts} giving Zucchet a pair, but not a good enough pair to notch him the double up. With that Zucchet was eliminated from the tournament in fourth place.
