Kevin "Racks" Roster, whose heartbreaking story about his battle with Sarcoma — a rare form of cancer — captured the hearts of the poker community, got all of his chips in the middle preflop against Elliott Peterman for roughly 3,400,000 and they were off to the races.

Kevin Roster: {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Elliott Peterman: {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}

The flop came {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{6-Clubs}, giving Peterman a flush draw to go along with his ace-king. The turn was the {k-Hearts}, putting Peterman way ahead, and the {3-Spades} on the river changed nothing sending Roster to the payout desk.

"Well, that ends the dream," Roster said as he was leaving the table. He ultimately finished in 39th place and received $22,561 for his deep run.
