Steven Loube - 5th place

Hand #49: Alex Bolotin opened to 25,000 and Josh Arieh made the call from the button along with Jon Lane in the big blind.

The flop fell {A-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} and Lane checked to Bolotin who bet 35,000 to produce two quick folds.

Hand #50: Alex Bolotin raised to 25,000 from under the gun and Steven Loube made the call from the big blind to see a {10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{9-Spades} fall with Loube checking.

Bolotin continued for 30,000 and Loube check-raised all in for for 251,000 with Bolotin making the call.

Loube: {K-Spades}{J-Clubs}
Bolotin: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}

With Loube trailing, he would need to find a king or an eight to take the lead, but when the turn and river landed the {4-Diamonds} and {6-Hearts}, Loube hit the rail in 5th place for a $53,777 payday.
