On the first hand, the flop read {9-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{4-Hearts} and Tu Dao checked before calling a bet from Kevin Erickson. The turn fell a {k-Hearts} and this time Dao check-raised. Erickson tanked for a minute and called.

The river showed a {k-Spades} and Erickson led out with a bet. Dao called, revealing {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} for ace-high and took down the pot as Erickson tabled {a-Hearts}{8-Clubs} for a lower kicker. Erickson was left with only 15,000 after that hand.

The hand after, Joshua Griffith raised under the gun and Erickson pushed his last chips in the middle from the small blind to call and the players tabled their cards:

Kevin Erickson: {a-Hearts}{9-Clubs}
Joshua Griffith: {k-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}

"I have a diamond!" said Griffith jokingly. "Oh you have a diamond, but I have a heart!" replied Erickson, which made the table laugh.

Erickson had the best starting hand but the board brought {3-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{k-Spades}, giving trips to Griffith to eliminate Erickson in 13th place.
