In a battle of the blinds, Arkadiy Tsinis and Pedro Aldave put their chips in the middle with similar stacks.
Tsinis was in a tough spot and never found a save on the runout. The dealer broke down the stacks and Aldave had Tsinis covered by 9,000.
That was the last hand of the level and the four remaining players went on a ten-minute break.
Pedro Aldave – 357,000 (30 bb)
Arkadiy Tsinis – Eliminated in 5th Place ($2,344)
