A short-stack shoved utg with about 60k and action folded all the way around to John Spadavecchia Jr. in the small blind, who shoved over the top.

The big blind opted out and John showed AK offsuit.  He had the shortie’s AJ dominated.   The board ran out Q 8 8 9 2 and John chipped up to about 260k, while his opponent was felted.

Down to 206 players remaining, just six away from the money.
