Persia Bonella opened the action with a bet of 8,500 from middle position and Karen Novotny pushed all in from the button. Bonella quickly announced call, but the blinds still had to act. Mikiyo Aoki was sitting in the big blind and declared her intention to raise and the floor was called to determine what Bonella's options were now that the action was back on her. She was given the option to fold even though she had said she would call the initial all-in raise. Novotny and Aoki were left to see a board.
"A three, a three. Come on," Novotny called. The flop was the worst possible for her. The dealer turned over and Aoiki had flopped quads, leaving Novotny drawing dead. She was eliminated in 25th place and earned $4,817.
