We found Thayer Rasmussen getting all in on sixth street against Denis Ethier.

"You're ahead of me right now," Ethier said.

Rasmussen: {6-Spades}{7-Hearts}/{5-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{k-Spades}{4-Hearts}
Ethier: {a-Hearts}{4-Spades}/{8-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}

Indeed, Rasmussen had the lead with a jack-low, and the dealer sent them seventh street.

"Let me see if I'm drawing dead," Ethier said, knowing the best hand he could make was an eight-low, while Rasmussen had a draw to a seven. Rasmussen turned over his card: {q-Diamonds}, meaning Ethier would win if he caught a ten or lower and didn't pair.

Ethier squeezed out the {7-Spades}, ending Rasmussen's quest for a second final table at this year's World Series of Poker.
