The action folded around to our chip leader Brent Hanks who was seated on the button, and he made the raise. Andrew Badecker folded in the small blind but Abdyl Konjuhi moved all-in from the big blind for around 500,000. Hanks called very quickly and when Konjuhi saw his hand he didn't like it one bit.

Hanks{A-Spades} {K-Clubs}
Konjuhi{A-Hearts} {2-Hearts}

So Konjuhi needed some low cards or hearts. The board ran out {9-Diamonds} {6-Spades} {6-Clubs} {5-Diamonds} {3-Clubs} and the necessary ingredients for a Konjuhi double up were missing, and he leaves us in 6th place. Hanks extends his lead at the top to 3,000,000.
