David Kim raised from the button, Chris Basile reraised from the small blind to 80,000, and Kim moved all in for 195,000. Basile went into the tank for a long time, and eventually somebody called for a clock.

Basile called with QhQc, and Kim turned over AhKc. Kim needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came 4s3h2d4h8d — Kim flopped a gutshot straight draw, but improved no further. Basile won the pot with his pocket queens to eliminate Kim from the tournament.

Chris Basile  –  495,000  (83 bb)
