Jay Klitzner

Anthony Barbera raises to 15,000 from early position and action folds to Jay Klitzner in the big blind, who calls and is all in for 14,000.

Barbera shows AdAc and is in good shape to give everybody a pay jump against Klitzner’s Ts5h.

Level 19: 3,000/6,000 with a 1,000 ante
Players Remaining: 9 of 87

Mithcell Mantin

Dylan Drazen raises to 15,000 from the hijack and action folds around to Michell Mantin in the big blind. Mantin tosses his last orange 1,000 denomination chip into the middle and is all in for 7,000.

Mantin shows 8s4d and needs help against Drazen’s Ac2c.

The flop is 8h5c3h, putting Mantin in the lead with top pair. The turn is the As and Drazen regains the lead with a pair of aces.

Mantin needs to hit an eight or a deuce on the river to stay alive, but the Th comes on the river and Mantin is eliminated on the bubble. Drazen takes the pot and secures the final nine players a payday.

Dylan Drazen – 265,000
Mithcell Mantin – Eliminated
