Level 31 – 60,000/120,000 with a 15,000 ante
Alexander Doroshko (pictured) opens jams from the button for about 1,900,000. Brian Kleinhenz folds his small blind and Brad Sailor calls off from the big blind. Sailor is at risk but ahead.
The board runs out Th-9d-5d-8h-8s and the dealer counts Sailor’s stack down to 1,590,000. Doroshko is left with about 250,000 and busts two hands later when his pocket fives are outdrawn by Eddie Ochana’s Ks-3d all in preflop.
With Doroshko’s elimination, the remaining three players have assured themselves a score of at least $111,311.
Brail Sailor – 3,285,000
Alexander Doroshko – Eliminated in 4th place ($77,257)
