Benjamin Michel Barkay Eliminated in 16th Place (€5,350)

Jaxon • Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Benjamin Michel Barkay

Benjamin Michel Barkay jammed from the hijack for 10 big blinds. Last year's Main Event winner Luigi Andrea Shehadeh over-jammed with {a-Spades}{k-Clubs} for about twice as much.

Barkay was behind but he got a dream of a flop with the {q-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} appearing on the board to give him two pair. However, the {7-Clubs} paired the board on the river and the {k-Spades} gave Shehadeh a better two pair.

The Israeli didn't walk away empty-handed as he headed to the cashier to collect the 16th place prize of €5,350. All remaining players are now guaranteed a payout of at least €6,200.
