Thad Smith - 15th Place

On the last hand of the night, Thad Smith raised it from the button, and Levi Berger called from the small blind. The flop came down {a-Clubs}{10-}{4-Clubs}, and the two players got in a raising war that saw all the chips get into the middle.

Smith: {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}
Berger: {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}

Berger's middle pair and flush draw was a coin flip against Smith, and Berger just went ahead and ended it on the turn with the {8-Clubs}. The meaningless river was the {5-Hearts}, and with that knockout, Berger bagged a huge lead with a stack of 1,420,000
