William Miller was all in preflop with [Kd][Qh] and was called by Vazgen Garigyan holding the [9c][8c]. The [Td][2h][Ts] flop was good for William, but the [Jh] on the turn gave Vazgen 10 outs to a straight or a pair. The [7d] on the river sealed William's fate, and he was sent to the payout desk to collect $10,031 for his 5th place finish.

Chris Schonbach was all in preflop holding the [7s][5s] against the [2d][2c] of Alex Peterson. When the flop fell [3d][3s][4h], Chris picked up 13 outs to beat Alex. But Alex had other plans, as the [2h] hit the turn to leave Chris drawing dead. To add insult to injury, the [2s] hit the river to make Alex quads. Chris will exit the tournament in 6th place, good for $8,098.
