Alex Keating
There is no small blind this hand. Alex Keating raises from the cutoff to 250,000, Dietrich Fast reraises from the button to 675,000, and Keating thinks for a while before he moves all in for 4,885,000.

Fast snap-calls with Diamond AClub K, and Keating turns over Heart AHeart Q. Keating needs to improve to stay alive.

The board comes Diamond 8Diamond 5Heart 4Heart 8Diamond J — Keating turns a heart flush draw, but improves no further. Fast wins the pot with his king kicker to eliminate Alex Keating in third place.
