Andrew Mackenzie - 9th place

Hand #1: Doug Polk opened to 43,000 and picked up the blinds and antes. Andy Philachack smiled and said "take it down Doug" and Polk responded "you got the goods, you got the goods" as the dealer pushed him the pot.

Hand #2: Andy Philachack opened to 43,000 from the hijack and Andrew Mackenzie called from the big blind. The flop came {8-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{4-Hearts} and Mackenzie checked. Philachack bet 50,000 and Mackenzie moved all in for 218,000 total. Philachack made the call and the crowd was stunned when the hands were turned over:

Mackenzie: {10-Spades}{9-Diamonds} — an open-ended straight draw
Philachack: {J-Spades}{10-Clubs} — a gut-shot straight draw and two overs

Philachack was actually ahead with his jack-high and it would stay that way when the turn was the {7-Diamonds} and the river was the {2-Diamonds}. Mackenzie failed to improve and was eliminated in ninth place.

Philachack stood up, put his hands in the air and said "it's still a turbo guys" and cautioned Doug Polk to not steal his blinds. "I'm not afraid to call with jack-high," he said with a grin.
