Stephen Diamantas opened for 85k in the cutoff.  Plamen Stoyanov made it 200k to play from the small blind.  Stephen shoved for 867k total.

After tanking for a couple of minutes, Plamen called, showing pocket 8s.  Stephen had AhQs and it was off to the races.

The race came up short as the flop brought Js8d6d giving Plamen a set.  When the Jd came on the turn giving him a full house, Stephen was drawing dead.

Stephen Diamantas finished in 8th place, earning $7,235.
