Joseph Cheong opened to 115,000 from the button. Stephane Albertini called from the small blind and Sergii Baranov called from the big.

The flop came {6-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs} and Albertini checked. Baranov led out for 225,000 only to have Cheong raise all in. Albertini folded and Baranov casually announced a call.

Cheong: {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}
Baranov: {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}

Cheong would need to fade a king or a diamond to stay alive in the tournament. Unfortunately that simply was not in the cards, as the {2-Diamonds} rolled off on the turn to give Baranov his flush. The {10-Spades} completed the board and Cheong was eliminated in fourth place, taking home €292,320 for his efforts.
