Vasile Buboi opened for 35,000 from the button, and a short stacked Kyle White shipped his last 110,000 from the big blind. Buboi made the call, and both players opened up.
White had found an ace to work with, but he was dominated by Buboi's jack kicker, and the flop of missed him. On the turn, White was drawing dead, and the on the river was a mere formality. With his 12th place finish, White earned more than $30,000, and the validation that comes with working his way through this extremely talented field.
