In back-to-back hands Michael Mizrachi just lost all his chips. First he raised from the button to 17,000 and Roger Hairabedian three-bet to 55,000 from the big blind. Mizrachi called with only 99,000 left behind.

"A gift for you," Hairabedian said as he bet 100,000 before the dealer could put out the flop.

The flop came down all rags and Mizrachi had to decided for his tournament life.

"I wish I had a pair. I've just got low cards and hearts," Mizrachi said who eventually folded his cards. On the very next hand Hairabedian completed from the small blind, and Mizrachi checked in the big.

The flop came down {7-Clubs}{7-Spades}{3-Spades} and Hairabedian checked. Mizrachi bet pot, which was just 16,000, and Hairabedian quickly re-raised the pot. The bet was 64,000 and Mizrachi instantly moved all in. Hairabedian called.

"I've got a full house," Mizrachi said to his friends on the rail.

Michael Mizrachi: {2-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}
Roger Hairabedian: {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}

Hairabedian needed a seven, eight or five in order to take the lead, and the turn brought the {8-Diamonds}. Mizrachi couldn't make another comeback as the river was the {2-Hearts}. Mizrachi was knocked out in third place, and the heads up battle will now go between Hairabedian and Ville Mattila
