Mark Betts - 9th Place

Mark Betts opened for 75,000 from under the gun only to have Patrik Antonius three-bet to 200,000 from the cutoff. The button and both blinds folded, and then Betts moved all in for 580,000. Antonius snap-called and the cards were turned up:

Antonius: {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}
Betts: {K-Spades}{J-Spades}

It was a bad spot for Betts and both he and Antonius shared a king, but the Finn's ace had him way out in front. It got even worse when the {9-Hearts}{a-Spades}{2-Clubs} flop paired that ace and left Betts in need of runner-runner. The {10-Hearts} turn kept him alive as a queen would give him a Broadway straight, but it would not come in as the {J-Diamonds} blanked on the river.

With that, we're down to two four-handed tables (last year's field combined to a single table at the final eight players).
