Alexey Rybin raised to 125,000 from under the gun and Aaron Katz called in the small blind. Dario Sammartino raised the pot to 500,000 in the big blind and both of his opponents called to set up a massive 1.5 million pot to the flop of {J-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}. Katz moved all in for 410,000 and Sammartino reraised the pot, forcing out Rybin.

Aaron Katz: {Q-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{10-Clubs}{7-Clubs}
Dario Sammartino: {A-Clubs}{A-Spades}{5-Clubs}{2-Spades}

"Let's get lucky once," Katz said and then asked for clubs after the {6-Clubs} turn before noticing Sammartino's nut flush draw. The river was the blank {A-Hearts} and Sammartino scooped the pot with a set of aces, eliminating Katz in 12th place for $70,421.
