Rory Mathews - 5th Place

Hand #85: Norbert Szecsi raised to 60,000 from the button, and Denis Gnidash made the call, as did Rory Mathews. The flop came {10-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}, and both callers checked to Szecsi, who bet 80,000. Only Mathews called. The turn was an {8-Clubs}, and Szecsi fired 185,000 this time. Mathews called without delay, and a {7-Hearts} arrived on the river. Szecsi tanked for a minute before announcing he was all in for 680,000. Mathews called, and he was shown {8-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for a flush. Mathews is now crippled, having just 80,000 to his name.

Hand #86: Denis Gnidash limped the button, and Kirby Martin checked his option. They checked the pot down, and Gnidash took down the pot with ace-high.

Hand #87: Rory Mathews jammed for 85,000 from the button. Chris DeMaci called.

Mathews: {q-Spades}{5-Spades}
DeMaci: {k-Clubs}{9-Clubs}

The board ran out {a-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{6-Hearts}{10-Spades}, and Mathews was done in fifth.
