Guillermo Hamilton shoved his short-stack, then seat 7 shoved, then David Shmuel (Miami, FL) shoved, having the other two covered.

Guillermo had Ks9h and was in bad shape against seat 7’s AdKh and David’s pocket Jacks.  The board ran out KcQcJs4s3s giving David a set and the pot.  He chipped up to ~290k, good for the chip lead.

Guillermo and the player in seat 7 reported to the rail with just a few minutes left in the night.

David Shmuel owns electronics shops in Miami, but is originally from Israel.  He’s been in the US for 20 years.
