James Romero

Jinho Hong opened to 600,000 from under the gun and Arsenii Karmatckii three-bet to approximately 2,500,000 in the hijack, representing the majority of his stack. Action folded to James Romero in the small blind and he cold four-bet jammed for approximately 9,800,000. Hong called and had Romero covered, and Karmatckii thought about it and folded.

James Romero: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}
Jinho Hong: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

A crowd of people gathered around to witness the massive flip with a huge amount of equity on the line.

The dealer spread the {8-Spades}{7-Spades}{3-Clubs} flop as the rail started to get even louder with anticipation. The {4-Hearts} turn left Romero needing an ace or king to survive, but the {5-Hearts} river bricked out and Hong's rail exploded as the South Korean player took a sizable chip lead.

Meanwhile, Romero was eliminated in sixth place following his deep run, good for $129,041.
