Level 17 (4000/8000/8000)
Total Entrants: 391
Players remaining: 29
Chip average: 269,655

Nihad Kovac raises in the cutoff to 18,000 and Garnet Farron (pictured) calls on the button. The blinds fold and we see a flop of K♠K♣Q♥. Kovac wastes no time moving all in for over 100,000. Farron has Kovac covered and snap-calls.

Nihad Kovac - J♥J♣
Garnet Farron - K♥9♥

Kovac is deep in a hole, needing one of the two remaining jacks in the deck to stay alive. The turn brings the 7♦, and the river fills up Farron with the 9♠.

Kovac exits in 31st place for $1,086.

Garnet Farron - 698,000
Nihad Kovac - Eliminated
