Elias Does Not Hear the Fat Lady's Song

[user153638] • Level 14: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

With 35,000 in the pot and a flop of {2-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{4-Hearts}, Matt Hyman checked from the small blind and Darren Elias bet 20,000 from the hijack. Kevin Song then raised to 50,000 from the button, Hyman folded, and Elias thought for a few beats before moving all in for 75,000 total. Song called.

Song: {5-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}
Elias: {6-Hearts}{6-Spades}

Song had flopped top pair and a straight draw, but Elias had a bigger pair with the same draw. Elias was looking to dodge a five to stay alive, and he did just that as the {Q-Clubs} blanked on the turn followed by the {A-Spades} on the river.
