Sergio Aido Eliminated in 5th Place ($72,233)

Cottrellmkw • Level 30: 100,000-150,000, 150,000 ante
Sergio Aido

Steve Zolotow raised to 375,000 from the button. Scott Seiver folded his small blind to send the action to Sergio Aido in the big blind who shoved his remaining 1,100,000 into the middle. Zolotow called to put Aido at risk.

Sergio Aido: {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}
Steve Zolotow: {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}

It was a race but one that became very lopsided in Zolotow's favor following the {k-Clubs}{5-Spades}{a-Spades} flop. The {9-Hearts} turn and {k-Spades} river brought no help to Aido who exited the tournament in 5th place, a result good for $72,233.
