Peter Smyth - 8th Place

Peter Smyth opened to 30,000 in middle position, and Jovy Ounthongdy shoved all in from the button for about 105,000. Eli Kim wasted no time shoving from the big blind, and Smyth drew a deep breath and asked for a count before realizing Kim covered his own 570,000 pretty easily. After thinking for more than a minute, Smyth called.

Smyth: {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Ounthongdy: {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}
Kim: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}

The dealer spread a flop of {5-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}, and Ounthongdy picked up outs with an open-ender. The turn was a {j-Hearts}, helping nobody. On the river, it was Kim improving with an {a-Hearts} for a set. He raised his arms in victory and scooped the massive pot, eliminating two opponents.
