$100,000 Challenge

Dan Shak Eliminated in 4th Place (AU$237,000)

Dan Shak - 4th Place

Andrew Robl limped in on the button for 16,000, before Dan Shak raised to 72,000 from the small blind. Igor Kurganov folded from the big blind after a brief hesitation, then Robl took a minute. Robl eventually called, and the flop came down {K-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{3-Clubs}.

On the flop, Shak fired 155,000. Robl took his usual time, then announced that he was all in.

"I guess I call, but I'm behind," said Shak as he made the call for his last 144,000. He turned up the {J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} and was up against Robl's {K-Spades}{5-Spades}.

"I need a queen... or running diamonds," said Shak with a sigh as he awaited the turn and river.

The turn was the {2-Spades} leaving Shak down to needing just a queen to win him the hand. The river was the {10-Clubs}, though, and Shak couldn't pull it off. He was eliminated in fourth place, and earned AU$237,000.
