The shortest stack when the final table started, Shawn McBride (pictured) laddered up one pay spot but could not climb any higher.
Thahn Bui limped from middle position and McBride completed his small blind. Derrick Contrares checked his option and the three players took in a J♥5♣4♥ flop. McBride put his last 120,000 in the middle and Contreras folded.
Bui called and McBride was officially at risk. Bui showed 9♥6♥ and had the 7♥2♥ of McBride crushed. The 5♥ hit the turn and McBride exited in ninth place. Bui chips up to 1,325,000 and is second in chips.
