After putting 10,000 in for the big blind ante, Thomas Kornechuk was forced all in from the big blind for 1,000. Julio Delgado raised from the cutoff, and the other players folded. Delgado took the side pot.

Kornechuk turned over Jd7s, and he needed to improve to stay alive against the Ks9c of Delgado.

The board came Kd8d2dAd4h, and Kornechuk turned a diamond flush to win the pot and add two 1K chips to his stack.

Thomas Kornechuk  –  13,000  (1 bb)
Julio Delgado  –  555,000  (56 bb)

The next hand, Kornechuk was all in from the small blind for 13,000 with 6s4c, but he was dominated by the As6d of Mark Edward Kerness on the button, needing to improve to survive.

The board came Jc9h2h2s10d, and Kerness won the pot with his ace to eliminate Kornechuk in fourth place.

Mark Edward Kerness  –  875,000  (88 bb)
Thomas Kornechuk  –  Eliminated in 4th Place  ($8,000)

With three players remaining from a field of 117, the average chip stack is around 780,000 (78 big blinds), and the remaining players are guaranteed at least $12,370 each.
