Steven Warburton Eliminated in 3rd Place ($534,000)

dsalituro • Level 38: Blinds 600,000-1,200,000, 1,200,000 ante
Steven Warburton

On the hand after losing most of his stack, Steven Warburton shoved for 18,400,000 from the small blind with {10-Spades}{9-Spades} and Arsenii Karmatckii snap-called in the big blind holding {a-Spades}{10-Hearts}.

Both players hit a pair on the {4-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} flop but Warburton was still behind Karmatckii's ace-kicker. Warburton picked up a flush draw on the {j-Spades} turn as his rail began chanting for a spade. The river came the {6-Clubs} and Warburton, who spent most of the final table as the overwhelming chip leader, was eliminated in third place.

Karmatckii and Hannes Jeschka are now on a short break before the start of heads-up play.
