Ryan Smith Eliminated in 6th Place ($19,710)
Nível 23 : 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante
Maria Konnikova raised to 50,000 from under the gun and Ryan Smith shoved for 380,000 from the hijack. Action folded back around to Konnikova and she quickly called to put Smith at risk.
Konnikova had the preflop advantage with the larger of the two pocket pairs and Smith needed a lot of help from the deck in order to double up. The board ran out giving both players a set, but Konnikova's was best, so she took the pot to end Smith's deep run in this tournament.
