Luke Vrabel

Hand #6: With Mark Babekov still missing, Luke Vrabel shoved all in for 2,950,000 on Babekov's dead big blind. Action folded around to Erkut Yilmaz who called the shove from the button. Next to act, Thomas Pomponio moved all in as well from the small blind for 8,620,000. Action was back on Yilmaz who asked for a count, tanked for about a minute-and-a-half, then called.

Yilmaz: {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}
Pomponio: {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}
Vrabel: {A-Spades}{2-Diamonds}

Vrabel jumped up from his chair and started screaming for a deuce. The flop came {Q-Spades}{8-Spades}{9-Diamonds} giving Vrabel only extra backdoor outs. He picked up his flush draw on the {7-Spades} turn, but he didn't complete it. The river came the {5-Diamonds} and he hit the rail in ninth place, collecting $79,827 for his efforts.
