Scott Zakheim moved all in under-the-gun for 79,000 and Natasha Barbour called from middle position. Mark Wahba moved all in from the hijack for 131,000 and Casey Yontz moved all in on the button for 234,000.

Action got back to Barbour, who asked for all of the different counts and then went into the tank.

“I guess whoever wins this pot wins the tournament, right?” joked Barbour. “Isn’t that how it goes?”

Barbour takes a minute and then folds pocket sevens face-up.

“They have been good to you this tournament,” said Zakheim.

Zakheim showed KhJh, Wahba tabled AdQc and Yontz was in the lead with his KdKs.

“At least my ace is live,” said Wahba.

The board ran out Tc3h2c2h9s and Yontz’s kings hold up to eliminate two players and shoot up the chip counts.

Wahba had more chips, so he gets the higher finish, taking 14th and Zakheim earned a 15th place. Both players netted $2,785 regardless of their finish.

Casey Yontz – 425,000
Scott Zakheim – Eliminated
Mark Wahba – Eiminated
