The owner of the shortest stack left in the Main Event had been valiantly jamming in open spots (i.e. when Kyle Maguire hadn’t opened) and picked up the 60k/120k/120k blinds from the button doing this the last orbit. This time, with about 1.5 million remaining, Tomas Geleziunas received a swift call from small blind Maguire.
Maguire: Ad 8c
Geleziunas: Jh Td
The board gave them both pairs, but Maguire’s was aces: Jd 2s Ah 5h 7c and just like that, we’re down to 10 players, one off the final.
