Stewart Newman - 16th Place

Stephen Graner raised to 100,000 preflop under the gun and Stewart Newman three-bet all in from the small blind with his remaining 550,000 chips. Graner spent some time deciding if he wanted to risk doubling up the short stack, but eventually called with the inferior {A-Spades}{5-Spades} to Newman's {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}. The board ran out {7-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{5-Hearts}{K-Clubs}, giving Graner the pair on the turn, and Newman exited the tournament in 16th place for $63,321. The remaining players have all jumped a pay level now; they're guaranteed $79,582.
