Aaron Johnson - Sixth Place

Aaron Johnson raised to 85,000 on the button, and Matt Kirby reraised to 200,000 from the small blind. Johnson crammed it in for about 1.2 million, and Kirby snap-called.

Kirby: {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}
Johnson: {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}

The two were racing, but Kirby flopped a pair on the {q-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} to take a huge lead. The {a-Spades} turn kept him in front, and a {k-Diamonds} river ended Johnson's tournament.
