Igor Kurganov opened for 70,000 from first position and action folded to Phanlert Sukonthachartnant in the small blind. The APPT 2015 ACOP High Roller champion moved all in for 228,000 and Steve O'Dwyer in the big blind asked for a count. As soon as he got it, he flat called. Kurganov knew enough and folded his hand to leave the two of them to it.

Phanlert Sukonthachartnant: {9-Diamonds}{10-Spades}
Steve O'Dwyer: {A-Hearts}{J-Clubs}

The {J-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop favored O'Dwyer but Sukonthachartnant had a live draw. The {10-Clubs} on the turn gave him some additional outs but the {K-Diamonds} on the river wasn't one of them.

Sukonthachartnant, truly one of the biggest names in poker, made his exit in 6th place for AU$131,760. The remaining 5 players are now guaranteed a pay day of AU$190,320.
