Ryan "Joeyisamush" Depaulo open-shoved to put his opponents all in from under the gun, and Hayden "Luckbox89" Fortini called off his last 5,810,456 from the small blind.

Hayden "Luckbox89" Fortini: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Ryan "Joeyisamush" Depualo: {a-Diamonds}{8-Spades}

Depaulo wouldn't be denied on a {2-Hearts}{q-Spades}{8-Diamonds} flop, giving him a pair of eights and the lead. The {j-Hearts} fell on the turn, opening up four more outs for Fortini, but Depaulo wouldn't be "mushed" on the {3-Clubs} river, and Depaulo earned his fifth knockout of the final table.
