Jesse Sylvia opened for 5,000 under the gun and received a call from Dan Smith in middle position. Anaras Alekberovas then three-bet to 25,000 from the button, leaving just 3,900 behind, and Sylvia made the call. Smith got out of the way and it was heads-up action to the flop. Sylvia wasted little time in leading out for 5,000 and Alekberovas called off.
Neither the turn nor river helped the young Lithuanian, and he was eliminated just shy of the first break.
