Jan Stein: {x-}{x-} / {3-Hearts} - folded on third street
Jose Paz-Gutierrez: {a-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} / {8-Spades}{4-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} / {x-}
Michael Sopko: {7-Clubs}{a-Clubs} / {3-Spades}{q-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{3-Clubs} / {x-}

Jan Stein brought it in, and Jose Paz-Gutierrez completed. Michael Sopko made it two bets, and after Stein folded, Paz-Gutierrez got his last 71,000 in, and Sopko called.

It was a fair fight after third street, but Paz-Gutierrez made a pair on fourth street. Sopko came back with a bigger pair on fifth street, and improved further to aces-up on sixth street. Sopko showed the {10-Diamonds} as his final card, and Paz-Gutierrez showed the {q-Spades}, giving him an inferior two pair and leaving him as the first casualty of the final table.
