Dmitry Yurasov

Hand #143: Sam Soverel opened for 400,000 first to act and Dmitry Yurasov shoved for 4.93 million right next to him. Andrew Lichtenberger quickly folded his small blind but Ben Heath in the big blind asked for a count.

Heath thought about it for a bit, glanced over to Soverel, and tossed in a time bank card to gain 30 seconds of extra time. Soverel, not fully paying attention it seemed, instantly mucked his cards out of turn as soon as Heath tossed in the time bank card.

With now just facing Yurasov's shove and not having to worry about Soverel, Heath called right away.

Yurasov, not happy with Soverel mucking out of turn, angrily stood up, almost tossing his chair in the process. Soverel apologized before the two tabled their cards.

Dmitry Yurasov: {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Ben Heath: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}

The board ran out {j-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{k-Hearts} {3-Hearts} {5-Hearts} and Yurasov exited the tournament area, busting in fourth place for $458,138. The remaining three players are now guaranteed $640,924. The runner-up is to receive $917,232 while the winner awaits $1,484,085.
