Michael Mizrachi: {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} / {10-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{k-Spades} / {x-}
Michael Sopko: {8-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} / {2-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{j-Spades} / {x-}

Michael Sopko brought it in, and Michael Mizrachi completed. Sopko called, then the duo bet and raised enough to get Sopko's last 280,000 in on fourth street.

Mizrachi held a pair of queens in the hole, while Sopko had four pieces to a low. Mizrachi improved to two pair by sixth street, while Sopko added a pair of jacks to his low cards. Mizrachi peeled the {2-Clubs} over first, meaning he had the high locked up with a full house. Sopko peeked at his card, needing a low card to survive, then tossed the {9-Hearts} on the felt, confirming his elimination.
