Federico Castaing limped in from the small blind and Jay Klitzner checked his option from the big blind. The flop was 8h6c4c and Castaing checked. Klitzner moved all in for about 100,000 and Castaing snap-called.

Klitzner showed 8s3s, good for top pair, but was drawing to runners against Castaing’s 7s5s, giving him the nut straight.

The turn was the Ac and the river was the 2d to send Klitzner home in third. He earned $3,381 for his run and leaves Castaing heads-up with David Hixson for the title.

Federico Castaing – 1,350,000
