Rainer Kempe raised to 4,500,000, around half his stack, on the button, Ragahavl Bansal three-bet shoved from the big blind and Kempe called all in for 10,900,000 total.

Rainer Kempe: {k-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Raghav Bansal: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}

"Assoh, assoh, assoh!" the Indian rail [presumably] cheered for an ace. Their champion remained ahead after the {j-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{3-Clubs} flop, reducing the German juggernaut's chances to win the hand. The turn was the {8-Clubs}, which gave Kempe a flush draw to go with his live cards.

The crowd gathered to see the {9-Spades} river brick for Kempe, ending his run in fourth place. The $65,482 cash is just a blip on his astonishing 20M+ in lifetime winnings poker résumé, but a WSOP bracelet will elude him for the time being.
