Shigeji Kusakabe Eliminated in 3rd Place (₱2,809,000 / $54,936)
Level 24 : 20,000-40,000, 40,000 ante
Shigeji Kusakabe shoved from the button for 1,810,000 and Ankit Ahuja snap-called in the small blind for Natalie Teh to quickly get out of their way.
The flop came for both of them to hit the straight immediately but for Ahuja to have the nuts with the Broadway but a king on the turn or river could mean a split pot.
The turn was the which didn't change things and neither did the on the river as Kusakabe was eliminated in 3rd place for ₱2,809,000 ($54,936).
Ahuja and Teh were sent for a short break before heads-up play would continue.
