Chance Kornuth raised to 225,000 and Aaron Mermelstein as the far shortest stack defended out of the big blind.

"It's still $10k," Kornuth remarked and Mermelstein replied "yeah but I gotta at least see the flop". Mermelstein then pushed for the rest of it on the {q-Spades}{10-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop and Kornuth called in an instant.

Aaron Mermelstein: {a-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{5-Clubs}
Chance Kornuth: {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{8-Spades}

With one eight gone and the ace dead as that would give Kornuth broadway, the chances of Mermelstein were very slim. It was all over on the {q-Clubs} turn and the {6-Diamonds} river ended his run in 14th place for $67,313.
