Event #57: $600 Deepstack Championship No-Limit Hold'em

Kohichi Manago Eliminated in 10th Place ($22,176)

• Nível 36: 300,000-600,000, 600,000 ante
Kohichi Manago

Jon Van Fleet opened from under the gun for 1,200,000. Kohichi Manago, in middle position, moved all in with 7,100,000 behind. Action folded back around to Van Fleet, who went into the tank.

"Online I'd never even think about folding this, but you seem so happy about your hand," Van Fleet said. Eventually, Van Fleet pushed forward a stack of chips, making the call, and putting Manago at risk.

Kohichi Manago: {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}
Jon Van Fleet: {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}

Van Fleet's read about Monago's happiness was right, and he found himself dominated. The {j-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} didn't change much, but the turn put the {q-Spades} on the board, putting Van Fleet ahead, and sending the rail into an uproar. The {2-Spades} river locked up the pot for Van Fleet, and put him neck and neck with Alex Jim for the chip lead.

Monago went around the table to wish each player luck and bump fists, still in high spirits despite the elimination. Several players throughout the day have commented on how much they enjoyed playing with Monago, who will take home a cash of $22,176 for his 10th place finish, nearly four times his career live earnings (per Hendon Mob) of $6,007.
