Hand #28: Matt Marafioti Eliminated in 9th Place ($34,005)
Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Photo: Level 23 ended as this hand began, so some of the players went on break and missed what happened on the last hand. Will Failla (left) stayed to watch as Shawn Cunix (right) eliminated Matt Marafioti.
Hand #28 - Matt Marafioti raises to 70,000 from middle position and Shawn Cunix calls from the big blind.
The flop comes A92 and Cunix checks. Marafioti announces he is all-in for around 600,000 and Cunix calls immediately.
Marafioti shows AQ for top pair and Cunix holds 22 for bottom set.
The turn brings the 9 and Marafioti needs an ace or a nine in order to take the pot. The river is neither and instead brings the 7, giving the pot to Cunix and sending Marafioti to the rail.
Shawn Cunix - 2,275,000 (114 BBs)
Matt Marafioti - eliminated in ninth place ($34,005)
