Alexander Grassia with piles of chips

With the board reading 9d8d5c and the pot already huge, Table 22 kept the action going. Jeffrey Kohlman was all in at risk for about 110,000 while Nashaat Antonious and Alexander Grassia were playing a side pot for 83,000 each.

The turn came 4s, Antonious checked, Grassia announced all in and Antonious called at risk for 247,000.

Kohlman: Ac9c
Antonious: JcJs
Grassia: 7d6c

Kohlman flopped top pair top kicker, Antonious had an over pair of jacks, but Grassia flopped the nine-high straight and had both players drawing dead to the 5d river to drag the massive pot.

Kohlman and Antonious were eliminated, Grassia stacked up to 1,100,000 and the field made it to the final table when Maurice Haynes was eliminated soon after.
