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.
The flop brought little hope for the Small and Meyer: . A on the turn eliminated Meyer from the pot and the tournament in 15th place, but a on the river gave Small new life. Mark Bonsack commented that it was the case jack.
