Michael Genovese - 10th Place

On the very first hand of the "unofficial" final table of ten, Eric Shank opened for 20,000 from early position only to have Shawn Silber call from late position. Michael Genovese then raised the pot from the big blind and made it 85,000. Shanks got out of the way, Silber repot and Genovese called off for 117,000 total.

Genovese: {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}{a-Spades}{j-Hearts}
Silber: {a-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}

The {4-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} flop was fairly dry, but the {Q-Diamonds} turn wasn't as it gave Genovese a set and Silber a flush draw. Wouldn't you know it, that flush came in when the {K-Diamonds} peeled off on the river. Just like that, we're down to the final table of nine.
