Shawn Meyer - 15th Place

Brendan Waite had just scooped up a pot and was in the middle of stacking chips when he checked his cards under the gun. He raised to 32,000, and a short-stacked Thomas Meyer went all in for 95,000. Sean Small, in the big blind, went all in over the top of that for 263,000 total. Waite instantly called.

Waite: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}
Small: {J-Spades}{J-Hearts}
Meyer: {K-Spades}{Q-Hearts}

The flop brought little hope for the Small and Meyer: {4-Clubs}{3-Spades}{9-Clubs}. A {5-Spades} on the turn eliminated Meyer from the pot and the tournament in 15th place, but a {j-Diamonds} on the river gave Small new life. Mark Bonsack commented that it was the case jack.
