The action folds to Casey Bauer (pictured) in the small blind, and he limps for 30,000. Jonathan Wilson shoves for 400,000 in the big blind. Bauer thinks for a few seconds and then says, "I'll call." The chip stacks are close but Bauer is the one at risk.
Bauer - A♣4♠
Wilson - A♥9♣
The board runs out J♦7♥5♦8♥7♠, and Wilson's nine kicker is enough to take down the pot.
Bauer nursed a short stack for most of the day and managed to stay alive halfway through the final table. For his efforts, he'll take home $5,059.
