Aleksandr Gofman - 5th Place

Hand #61: RJ Sullivan opened to 90,000, Aleksandr Gofman moved all in, Matt Stout called all in and Sullivan folded.

Stout: {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades}
Gofman: {5-Diamonds}{5-Spades}

Stout was the player at risk and was in a good spot to get the double up. After the dealer fanned out a board of {6-Spades}{9-Clubs}{2-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Hearts}, Stout was pushed the pot.

Hand #62: Sullivan opened to 90,000 under the gun, Gofman moved all in for 340,000 on the button, Peter Gould called in the big blind and Sullivan called behind. The flop came {q-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{5-Spades}, Gould jammed all-in, Sullivan folded and the cards were turned face up.

Gould: {a-Hearts}{a-Spades}
Gofman: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

Gofman was way behind and needed a ten on the turn or river to survive. The {4-Spades} on the turn gave Gofman one last hope, but the river {3-Spades} shipped the pot to Gould and Gofman was eliminated in 5th place.

Hand #41: Aleksandr Gofman moved all in, and Stout raised all in over top.

Stout: {k-Clubs}{q-Hearts}
Gofman: {a-Clubs}{6-Spades}

Gofman was at risk and slightly ahead going into the flop. The dealer fanned out a board of {8-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{2-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}, and Gofman’s rivered pair of sixes took down the double up.

Hand #42: Brett Schaffer opened to 80,000 and Rob Wazwaz called in the big blind. The flop came {q-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{8-Spades}, Wazwaz checked, Schaffer bet 80,000, Wazwaz raised all in and Schaffer called.

Wazwaz: {q-Spades}{j-Hearts}
Schaffer: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}

Schaffer was in the lead and looking for a double. His pair of queens, ace kicker would hold through the turn {8-Clubs} - and river {2-Spades} - to claim the pot.

Hand #43: Sullivan opened to 90,000 on the button, Wazwaz moved all in for 50,000 and Schaffer called in the big blind.

The flop was dealt {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}. Schaffer bet 65,000, Sullivan raised to 185,000 and Schaffer called. The turn was the {q-Diamonds} and both players checked to see the river {q-Hearts}. Both players checked again and their cards were tabled.

Sullivan: {a-Hearts}{8-Spades}
Wazwaz: {6-Hearts}{6-Spades}
Schaffer: {k-}{j-}

All three players ended up with a full house, however, Sullivan’s aces full of queens was the best hand and eliminated Wazwaz in seventh place.
