Dan Shak Eliminated in 4th Place (AU$400,000)
Level 27 : 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante
Dan Shak came close to a title in the 2013 Aussie Millions $100,000 Challenge when he finished in fourth place for AU$237,000, and now his bid at another title has come to an end in the same place.
It happened when Shak opened for 250,000 under the gun and was met by a three-bet to 760,000 by Joe Cabret on the button. The blinds both folded, Shak moved all in, and Cabret snap-called.
It was a bad time for Shak to shove as Cabret had him crushed. The flop gave both a pair of aces, but Cabret's king kicker had him well out in front. Neither the turn nor river helped Shak and once again he had to be satisfied with a fourth-place finish, this one good for AU$400,000.
