Seat 4: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}

The board ran out {Q-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{K-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{2-Spades}, giving Seat 4 the double up and crippling Sebok, who was left with just 1,425.

The very next hand, the player in Seat 3 raised to 550 and Sebok moved all in. Seat 3 called and showed {J-Hearts}{10-Hearts} which was dominated by Sebok's {Q-Spades}{J-Diamonds}.

When the flop came {6-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}, Sebok threw up his hands in frustration and said, "Nice hand." Even before the {6-Hearts} appeared on the turn, Sebok was out of his seat gathering his things. The {3-Spades} on the river made it official, Sebok is out of the tournament.
