On a {9-Clubs}{a-Spades}{j-Clubs} flop Eric Kurtzman bet 65,000 and Chance Kornuth moved all in. Galen Hall folded but Kurtzman quickly called.

Eric Kurtzman: {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}
Chance Kornuth: {8-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

In normal no-limit hold'em Kornuth would be flipping and a slight underdog to send Kurtzman to the rail, but in short deck hold'em he was now almost a 60% favourite to win the pot.

The turn was the {6-Diamonds} but the river was the {7-Diamonds} completing his straight and eliminating Kurtzman. This was Kurtzman's 15th WSOP cash and his biggest since a runner-up in the 2017 $10,000 Razz Championship for $163,867.
