Jonathan West

Action folded to Jonathan West in the small blind and he limped in. Koray Aldemir raised to 100,000 from the big blind and West called.

West tapped the table on {7-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{9-Clubs} and Aldemir bet 90,000. West announced a raise, making it a massive 600,000 with about 800,000 behind.

Aldemir took his time and eventually shoved all in. West called.

Jonathan West: {7-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Koray Aldemir: {Q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

The {K-Hearts} on the turn was a blank and while the {8-Diamonds} on the river paired the board, it wasn't the card West was looking for.

The rich just got richer, while West had to settle for 12th place, netting him $63,220. The remaining 11 players are now guaranteed $75,640.

Bartosz Stasiewicz - 13th Place

In the first hand back from the break, Action folded to the short-stacked Bartosz Stasiewicz on the button and he moved all in for right around 285,000. Shawn Buchanan, the second-shortest stack among the remaining players, then three-bet all in over the top from the small blind.

Stasiewicz: {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}
Buchanan: {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}

It was a flip, but Stasiewicz needed to improve to stay alive. Unfortunately for him, that proved easier said than done as the board ran out a dry {5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{4-Clubs}{a-Spades}.
