Jeff Williams started as the short stack after the dinner break and became even shorter after losing nearly half his stack to Chun Law. Williams had opened with a pot-sized raise to 175,000 but opted to check-fold on an {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{5-Spades} board with just 225,000 behind.

In the next hand, Loren Klein opened to 150,000 from the small blind. Williams shoved and Klein called.

Klein: {Q-Spades}{10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{2-Spades}
Williams: {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{2-Clubs}

"You're all over me," laughed Williams to Klein after the dealer had spread out a {J-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades} board. Williams said his goodbyes in fourth place and just missed out on his third six-figure cash at the WSOP.
