It folded around to Aleksejs Ponakovs in the small blind who raised to 250,000 and Danard Petit called from the big blind.

The flop came {5-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. Ponakovs bet 225,000 and Petit called.

The turn then brought the {J-Clubs}, and this time Ponakovs bet 400,000, leaving himself about 600,000 behind. Petit got a look at what Ponakovs had left and raised all in, and after thinking for a short while Ponakovs called all in.

Petit tabled his hand first, showing {A-Spades}{7-Spades} for a pair of aces. Then Ponakovs showed he had but {K-Diamonds}{5-Spades} for a pair of fives. Ponakovs needed to see either a king or five to survive.

The river was the {4-Clubs}, and Ponakovs has been eliminated in 33rd place.
