Shannon Shorr dropped to 365,000 and moved all in from the hijack. It made it around to Ilir Rugova in the big blind and he called.

Shorr: KhJc
Rugova: 6s5c

Shorr was alive for a double up but needed to dodge the two live cards of Rugova. The QdTd7c flop was safe as was the Th turn. The bad news for Shorr came on the 5h river to send him out in 37th place.

Ilir Rugova – 2,350,000 (39 bb)
Shannon Shorr – Eliminated in 37th Place ($24,000)
