Rob Manjura got it all in from UTG/cutoff for 1,500 with 9d9c, and he needed his hand to hold to stay alive against the AcKs of David Jackson in the big blind.

The board came 8c3s2h3c6d, and the pocket nines held up for Manjura to win the pot and double up in chips.

Rob Manjura  –  3,450,000  (12 bb)
David Jackson  –  10,750,000  (36 bb)

Rob Manjura moved all in again from UTG/cutoff for 3,450,000, Isaac Kempton called from the button, and Paul Balzano called from the small blind. David Jackson asked for a good look at Kempton’s stack before he folded in the big blind.

The flop came Kd10h5s, Balzano checked, Kempton moved all in, and Balzano folded.

Manjura showed AsKh for a pair of kings, but Kempton turned over AhAc for a pair of aces. Manjura was drawing very thin, and he needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the Ad, the river card was the 7c, and Kempton won the pot with a set of aces to eliminate Manjura in fourth place.

After the hand, Balzano looked at Kempton and said, “You asked for aces, and you got them.”

Kempton said, “I waited a long time for them.”

Isaac Kempton  –  16,250,000  (54 bb)
Paul Balzano  –  5,700,000  (19 bb)
Rob Manjura  –  Eliminated in 4th Place  ($103,434)

With three players remaining, the average chip stack is about 11,620,000 (39 big blinds), and the next player to bust will earn $135,794.
