Joel Deutsch

Joel Deutsch and Bob Panetta were the two short stacks at the final table when Panetta played a hand against Willie Wiggins. Panetta moved all in for 2,200,000 after a 7h5h5s flop holding AdKc and Wiggins called with 4c4d.

The Js turn was safe for Wiggins but Panetta stayed alive when he spiked the As river to double up.

“That’s a $10,000 hand river right there,” Deutsch said of the difference between fifth and sixth place.

Soon after, Deutsch was all in from the big blind for the 800K ante and 600K out front. Traci Myhrum, Joey Burns, and Frank Lewis all came along for the minimum and checked down the AdTs7c3hJs board.

Deutsch showed Ks4c and Myhrum tabled 8s8d for the best of the live hands to eliminate Deutsch in sixth place.

Traci Myhrum – 15,200,000 (19 bb)
