Having lost a big pot earlier to Scott Seiver (in which Seiver ended up showing down hole card three-of-a-kind eights, a surprise to himself with his four-flush draw), Eli Elezra's stack dwindled into the emergency zone. He started betting showing {x-}{x-}/{q-Clubs} against Joshua Mountain with {x-}{x-}/{2-Clubs}, and didn't stop until he moved all-in on sixth street. Neither did Mountain stop calling, despite Elezra telling him that there was no shame in it, and then announcing to the table, "This guy never folds!"

Elezra: {x-}{x-}/{q-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{q-Hearts}
Mountain: {x-}{x-}/{2-Clubs}{3-Spades}{6-Spades}{a-Hearts}

The dealer dealt the rivers face up, to go with the revealed {q-Diamonds}{10-Spades} of Elezra and {2-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} of Mountain, but the latter's {5-Diamonds} final card couldn't help vs. Elezra's trip queens.

A tablemate requested that the last card always be dealt down. Elezra agreed, saying, "There's no way I'm not going to sweat it! I love sweating. I paid $1,500 for this tournament, I'm going to sweat it."

The very next hand, Mountain lost a 100,000+ pot to Scott Seiver, meaning this last level has been pretty expensive for him.
