Scott Seiver: (X)(X) / {2-Diamonds} - fold
Sebastian Ruthenberg: (X)(X) / {4-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{6-Spades} / (X)
Brian Rast: (X)(X) / {K-Spades}{10-Spades}{9-Hearts}{A-Diamonds} / (X)

Scott Seiver brought in and Sebastian Ruthenberg completed all in for 16,000. Brian Rast called and then Ben Lamb raised. Seiver folded and with Ruthenberg all in, Rast made the call. On to fourth street.

On fourth, Lamb bet, Rast raised and Lamb called, all while Ruthenberg sat back and watched anxiously. On fifth, Lamb checked, Rast bet and Lamb folded to leave Rast heads up with Ruthenberg.

After Lamb folded on fifth, Ruthenberg revealed ({9-Spades}{4-Clubs}) / {4-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{2-Hearts}. Rast held ({K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}) / {K-Spades}{10-Spades}{9-Hearts} for rolled up kings. He was well in front, but Ruthenberg did have a flush draw that could come in.

Ruthenberg picked up a {6-Spades} and Rast the {A-Diamonds}, which left Ruthenberg drawing dead. Just for good measure, Rast went on to make a full house with the {10-Diamonds} on the river and Ruthenberg finished with the {2-Clubs}.

Ruthenberg was eliminated in 16th place for $108,503. He was first first player to hit the rail and the remaining 15 players headed off on their one-hour dinner break.
