A short-stacked Mikhail Semin raised to 41,000 from the button only to have Kyle Carlston three-bet the pot from the big blind. Semin called off for 101,000 total and the cards were turned up:

Semin: {A-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}
Carlston: {K-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{J-Diamonds}

The {K-Spades}{3-Spades}{4-Hearts} flop was kind to Carlston as it delivered him two pair, but all Semin needed was another low card that didn't pair the board to take half the pot. Unfortunately for the Russian, neither the {9-Clubs} turn nor {4-Clubs} river were what he needed and he exited late on Day 2 in 13th place.
