HillKerby • Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante
Aaron Curti

James Lawrence opened to 40,000 from the cutoff and was called by Bob Van Syckle, who was on the button. Aaron Curti was in the big blind and reraised all in for 80,000, receiving calls from Lawrence and Van Syckle to give him an opportunity to triple up with any future action going into a side pot between Lawrence and Van Syckle.

The flop came {4-Hearts}{9-Spades}{j-Hearts} and Lawrence checked. Van Syckle slid out a stack of chips to bet and Lawrence quickly folded to leave just two players remaining.

Aaron Curti: {a-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Bob Van Syckle: {j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

Van Syckle's flopped pair of tens was ahead of Curti's ace-high and nothing changed as the turn {k-Spades} and river {3-Diamonds} completed the runout to earn Van Syckle the pot as Curti was eliminated from the tournament.

Moments later, Scotter Clark shoved all in from the cutoff and was called by Gennady Shimelfarb.

Scotter Clark: {9-}{9-}
Gennady Shimelfarb: {j-}{j-}

Clark was unable to hit a nine as the board ran out clean for Shimelfarb, resulting in the 2015 Fall Poker Classic Main Event Champion taking 14th place in the tournament.
