Jon Van Fleet raised to 800,000 from the button before Jeremy Ausmus, the small blind, went nearly all in, leaving himself 50,000 behind. Kohichi Manago moved all in from the big blind. Van Fleet folded and Ausmus tossed in his last two chips as the player at risk.
Manago was ahead and managed to fade Ausmus' ace on the runout. Manago scooped the pot, and Ausmus was eliminated.
The four-time bracelet winner left the tournament area in high spirits, with several players from both tables telling him how great it was to play with him. He returned the sentiment and shook several hands before heading to the payout desk.
