A player raised from the button to 4,000, Sean Remz reraised from the small blind to 11,500, and the layer in the big blind moved all in for 34,500.

The player on the button tanked for a very long time before he folded, and Remz called fairly quickly with 8h5c. The big blind turned over AsAd, and needed his aces to hold to stay alive.

The board came 9d8c2c6d7d — Remz paired his eight on the flop and rivered a nine-high straight to win the pot and eliminate his opponent.

Sean Remz  –  140,000  (93 bb)

After the hand, Remz implied that he would have folded if the player on the button hadn’t taken so long to think, but Remz considered the entire situation and decided to call.

Remz final tabled the big field of Event 1 ($600 Deep Stack No-Limit Hold’em) earlier this series, finishing fifth to earn $109,320.
