Kyle Carlston - 8th place
Kyle Carlston - 8th place

A short-stacked Kyle Carlston opened for 50,000 from early position and Steven Loube called from the hijack seat. Timothy Finne leaned forward to see how much Carlston had left behind — 163,000 exactly — and called as well from the cutoff. It folded to Sonu Sharma in the big blind who also called, and the four players saw the flop come {6-Hearts}{9-Spades}{10-Hearts}.

Sharma checked, and Carlston promptly pushed his remaining stack forward. After a brief pause, Loube announced the call, and the action was on Finne. This time Finne was leaning forward to see how much Loube had left — about 580,000 — then leaned back again before saying he was reraising all in.

Finne's reraise was for 582,000 total. Sharma quickly stepped aside, and a somewhat exasperated Loube thought for about a half-minute before folding his {A-}{10-}{9-}{2-} face up (top two pair).

The remaining players tabled their cards.

Carlston: {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{4-Hearts} — straight wrap draw, flush draw
Finne: {A-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{2-Spades} — pair of nines, nut flush draw

The turn was the {2-Clubs} and river the {3-Spades}, meaning no one made a low and Finne's pair of nines took the high. Loube's exasperation continued, but he patted Finne on the back for his move and for taking the pot and the chip lead.

All likewise congratulated Carlston on his finish here at his second career WSOP final table.
