Steve Chanthabouasy lost a big chunk of chips to Dustin Dirksen when both players made trip aces on a board of {A-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{6-Spades}{A-Hearts}{2-Hearts} and had the same kicker. Dirksen made a better low and took three-quarters of the pot, leaving Chanthabouasy short.

On the next hand, Viacheslav Zhukov opened with a raise from the cutoff. Chanthabouasy raised from the small blind. Action folded back to Zhukov and he called.

The flop was {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} and Chanthabouasy moved all in for the rest of his chips and Zhukov called.

Steve Chanthabouasy: {A-Spades}{7-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}
Viacheslav Zhukov: {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{10-Spades}{6-Hearts}

The board completed with the {9-Clubs} and the {8-Hearts} and that mean that Zhukov had the best of it with his three tens. He took down the pot and sent Chanthabouasy to the payout desk in 12th place to collect $25,619.
