Level 22 (12,000/24,000/4,000)
Total Entrants: 346
Players Remaining: 6

Jon Bennett (pictured) started the final table as the short stack and is now second in chips after taking a multi-way pot from Eric Thompson and Jesse Jones. 

Jones opened the hijack to 50,000 and Thompson called the button and Bennett came in from the big blind. The A♣K♣3♣ flop checked to Thompson and he bet 65,000. All three players called and the 9 turn checked through. Bennett bet 100,000 on the river and after Jones folded, Thompson called.

Bennett rolled over A9♣ and Thompson flashed an ace before mucking. Bennett is up to 1,390,000, making him second in chips behind Thompson, who is playing 1,970,000. Jones is third with 1,285,000. The blinds are about to go up and RJ Michel is the short stack with 410,000.
