Renat Bohdanov raised to 250,000 on the button and Rafi Elharar defended his big blind. The flop was and Elharar checked. Bohdanov bet 225,000, Elharar check-raised all in for around 850,000, and Bohdanov beat him into the pot with a call.
Elharar was in dire straights with the inferior kicker and neither the turn nor river saved his tournament life.
The Israeli, who finished 3rd in the Big 50 at this summer's WSOP for $534,574, the largest live poker tournament ever held, now had to settle for 7th place as he made his way off the stage.
