Bruce Kramer Out in 25th Place ($14,025)

Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Taylor McFarland opens to 28,000 in early position and Bruce Kramer three-bets all in for 33,000 from middle position. Gene OLeary calls from the next seat over, McFarland calls and the flop falls 9club5diamond4heart.

OLeary checks out of position, then folds to a bet from McFarland who shows KclubKdiamond

"I need an ace," says Kramer as he shows Aheart7spade.

"No you're ahead," says OLeary. "Low cards!"

The 9club turn and 8club river complete the board, scoring the elimination for McFarland.

However, Kramer now thinks that he wins and exchanges a high five with OLeary.

"He has kings," points out everyone else at the table.

"Oh! I though it was jack-king," replies OLeary.

Taylor McFarland - 1,310,000 (109 bb)

Crowe shows Adiamond5heart for two pair, aces and fives, and Munro mucks. Crowe wins the pot.

Andrew Shack Has a Pair

Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Andrew Shack raises from midle position, Richard Munro calls in the small blind, and Jeremy Kottler calls from the big blind.

The flop comes 7diamond4heart2club and action checks to Shack, who bets 30,000. Munro thinks a bit before calling, then Kottler check-raises to 85,000. Shack wastes no time moving all-in for around 875,000.

Munro, who has around 840,000, thinks a while before folding.  Kottler smiles and quickly folds, telling Shack he has a pair.

Shack assures Kottler he has a pair too, then rakes in the pot.

Andrew Shack - 1,080,000 (90 bb)

Lee shows QdiamondQheart, but it is second best to Crowe's Aclub8club.
