Dan Shak

On a five-way turn with the board reading {j-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{4-Diamonds} and a little over 60,000 in the pot, Dan Shak fired a bet of 55,000 from the cutoff.

Luis Calvo came over top with an all-in check-raise from the small blind. The rest of the table folded back to Shak who called for about 50,000 more to put his tournament life at risk.

Dan Shak: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{4-Spades}
Luis Calvo: {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}

Calvo's set of sevens was ahead, but Shak had a pair of flush draws to work with.

The {k-Clubs} on the river brought neither of Shak's draws in and he was sent to the rail.
