Hand #35: Scot Masters raised to 500,000 under the gun. He got a call in the cutoff from Sevak Mikaiel. In the big blind, Renato Kaneoya raised all in. Masters thought for a while before folding, then Mikaiel thought for a while as well but he decided to toss in the call after his contemplation. His tournament life was at stake.

Mikaiel {k-Spades}{q-Spades}
Kaneoya {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}

The flop immediately paired Kaneoya when it came the {6-Spades}{6-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} the turn ended the backdoor flush possibility when the {5-Diamonds} fell and the river was the {j-Diamonds} to wrap up Mikaiel's tournament in an impressive fifth place finish.
