Russell Thomas is interviewed by Kara Scott after busting in 4th.

Hand #135:

Jesse Sylvia was on the button, and the action folded to Russell Thomas, who raised to 1.5 million from the small blind. Jake Balsiger moved all in from the big blind for effectively 15.825 million, and Thomas tank-called.

Thomas: {a-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}
Balsiger: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}

Balsiger's rail exploded at the site of his hand, and became even louder after the flop fell {8-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{5-Hearts}. Thomas could double with a nine or running straight or flush cards.

The {5-Diamonds} took away a lot of Thomas' outs, but he could now chop with any queen or eight.

The river was six-sided, but the {7-Hearts} eliminated Thomas in fourth place. He'll take home $2,851,537.
