Hand #52: Aliaksei Boika open-shoved for the second time in a row, this time for 2,090,000 first to act. It got folded to Steven Wolansky in the big blind, who called directly.

Aliaksei Boika: {a-Diamonds}{K-Spades}
Steven Wolansky: {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}

Boika, chipleader just three hands ago, needed to come from behind to save his tournament life. The packed crowd jumped on their feet as the {6-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{9-Spades} flop was dealt, not helping Boika. The Belarusian picked up a flush draw on the {6-Spades} turn but {3-Clubs} on the river wasn't one of the outs he was looking for.

Boika went off to collect $142,458 for his fourth-place finish.
