Allen Kessler moved all in for his remaining 180,000 from the hijack and Rami Boukai called in the big blind to put Kessler at risk.

Allen Kessler: {a-Spades}{2-Hearts}
Rami Boukai: {q-Clubs}{8-Spades}

Kessler was ahead going into the flop until the dealer spread out {q-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} and Boukai now took the lead with his flopped queen. A {4-Spades} peeled off on the turn and Kessler said "Five! five!" but it was of no help as the {6-Spades} completed the board.

Boukai took down the pot with his queen and ended the run of Kessler who was hopeful of acquiring his first gold WSOP bracelet, but will have to settle for a fifth-place finish worth $24,292.
