On the 48th hand of the unofficial final table, Rafal Michalowski opened to 52,000 in middle position. Trevor Pope three-bet to 112,000 on the button, Michalowski four-bet to 204,000, Pope five-bet to 313,000, and Michalowski moved all in for 710,000. Pope snap-called.
Michalowski was crushed, and received no help from the board. He was eliminated in ninth place, earning him $37,391, while Pope will have roughly half of the chips in play entering the final table tomorrow.
