A player got it all in under the gun for 21,500 with AsJs, but needed to improve to stay alive against the AhQh of Anes Kovacevic in the small blind.

The board came 10s9h7dKc9d, and the short stack turned a gutshot straight draw, but improved no further. Kovacevic won the pot to eliminate his opponent from the tournament.

Anes Kovacevic  –  235,000  (118 bb)
