Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante
Antonio Esfandiari (UTG+1) raises to 5,600, AP Phahurat calls, one other player calls, and Shawn Cunix calls from the big blind.
The flop comes K-9-2, Cunix checks, Esfandiari bets 13,000, and Phahurat raises to 50,000. The fourth player folds, and Cunix check-raises all in for more than 300,000. Esfandiari calls, and Phahurat folds.
Cunix shows 2-2 for bottom set, but Esfandiari turns over K-K for top set.
Neither the turn nor the river is a deuce, and Antonio Esfandiari wins the biggest pot of the tournament with a set of kings to eliminate Shawn Cunix.
Antonio Esfandiari - 885,000
Shawn Cunix - Eliminated
Level 12: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Alex Phahurat - 165,00 (103 bb)
Level 5: 150-300, 25 ante
Shawn Cunix passes along this hand update from late in the last level.
Four players put in 600 each to see a flop of K-3-2 with two spades. All four players put in another 2,600 to see a non-spade 5 fall on the turn.
Cunix bet 10,500, two players folded, and the third player shoved. Cunix snap-called with 6-4 offsuit for the six-high straight. His opponent turned over K-8 for a pair of kings, no draw -- and no way to catch up to Cunix's straight.
Cunix won the pot to more than double up to 67,000 in chips.
Shawn Cunix - 67,000 (223 bb)
