Brian Rast was under the gun and opened with a raise to 550. Scotty Nguyen flatted from the next seat over and it folded around to Brad Ruben in the small blind. Ruben cut out a three-bet to 1,875 and action folded back around to Rast. Rast called the three-bet and Scotty wasted little time four-betting to 6,150. Ruben five-bet shipped all in, Rast folded, and Nguyen called an additional 2,100 for his tournament life.
The board fell , allowing Ruben's pocket aces to stay out in front. Nguyen was eliminated from play and Ruben's stack is now up to about 30,000.
