BrandonBloom • Level 28: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante
Michael Stembera

Hand #162: Michael Stembera opened the cutoff to 260,000 and Tony Sinishtaj three-bet to 700,000 on the button. Action folded back to Stembera who moved all-in for approximately 4,100,000, and Sinishtaj called.

Michael Stembera: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}
Tony Sinishtaj: {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}

The two were flipping and Stembera vaulted ahead on the {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} flop, until the {j-Clubs} hit the turn to move Sinishtaj back in front. Stembera was drawing to a ten for Broadway, but the {a-Clubs} completed the board to secure the pot for Sinishtaj on the rollercoaster runout.

Stembera takes home $390,053 for his deep fifth-place finish.
