Hand #40: Will Failla Eliminated in 6th Place ($54,704)
Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Shawn Cunix raises from middle position to 100,000, and Will Failla thinks for more than a minute before he calls from the big blind.
The flop comes 1097, Failla quickly moves all in for 265,000, and Cunix instacalls with J10 (top pair, jack-high flush draw, gutshot straight draw). Failla turns over QJ for a higher straight draw, a higher flush draw, but no pair.
The turn card is the A, and Failla needs a king, queen, eight, or any club to stay alive.
The river card is the 5, and Shawn Cunix Cunix wins the pot with a pair of tens to eliminate WPT Player of the Year points leader Will Failla in sixth place.
