Ila Dyment (Brooklyn, NY)
Ilya Dyment is crippled against Asher Conniff and is eventually eliminated in third place.
On the pivotal hand Conniff is all in for 3.4 million and at risk.
Dyment: Q♣ Q♥
Conniff: A♣ 5♠
Flop: 2♥ 9♦ 3♦d (Conniff gutshot straight draw)
Turn: 3♠ (no change)
River: 4♣ (Conniff straight)
The straight on the river gives Conniff the double-up and drops Dyment to 1 million chips. He busts one hand later with A 5 against the Q 10 of James Blankenship when a 10 hits the turn.
