Veselin Karakitukov

Ka Kwan Lau raised to 320,000 and Veselin Karakitukov called on the button. Shaun Deeb then three-bet to 1,340,000, and Karakitukov called for half of his remaining stack after Lau folded.

Deeb continued on the {7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} flop, betting enough to put Karakitukov all in and was called.

Veselin Karakitukov: {k-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{10-Spades}{9-Diamonds}
Shaun Deeb: {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{2-Hearts}

Deeb's aces were ahead of Karakitukov's flush draw, and the {3-Diamonds} turn and {k-Diamonds} river were no help. Deeb knocks out Karakitukov in fifth place while climbing to second in chips.
