Level 25: 12,000-24,000 / Ante 4,000
Nicolas Salas had asked for a miracle and got that just now in the form of pocket aces, only to be cursed and eliminated in 6th place.
Timothy Cavallin raised from the cutoff and Salas shoved for 141,000 from the button, all other opponents folded.
Nicolas Salas: Ad Ah
Timothy Cavallin: Jh 10d
The 9s 8s 8d flop gave Cavallin an open-ended straight draw and the 7c on the turn completed said straight. Salas was not drawing dead, but the Jc on the river was a blank and the Frenchman took 6th place for $16,000. Cavallin moved back up to 1,600,000 and is almost even with Jean-Luc Adam.
