The quick pace of getting down to the final table meant the stacks deepened back up in relation to the blinds. They played ten-handed for more than an hour before we had the first one gone.

There were a few small doubles up but the big pot came when John Depresio opened to 125,000 to get a call from Pedro Palacio. It folded around to Steve Raeman and he moved all-in for 1.315,000.

Depresio took a few moments before moving all-in himself to get a reluctant fold from Palacio. They were racing with Raeman’s 7c7s ahead against AcKh but the Ks8s8h flop swapped that. It ran clean for Depresio on the Qc turn and 4d river to send the former chip leader out in 10th place for $2,881.
