It was folded to Stephen Diamantas in the small blind and he moved all in hoping to apply pressure to the shortest stack, Cord Garcia. Cord woke up with A-9 though and made the call. Diamantas had Q-J and Cord would pair his 9 which would be more than enough to win the pot.

The players colored up the 1K chips and a quick run down of the stacks gives us the following chip counts:

Seat 1: Cord Garcia 765K
Seat 2: Ryan Sponaugle 1.46 million
Seat 3: Steven Korfonta 2.245 million
Seat 4: Stephen Diamantas 1.55 million
