Two short stacks clashed when Josh Bergman got his chips in before the flop from middle position against Aaron Messmer, who was on the button and had him covered by a narrow margin.

Josh Bergman: {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs}
Aaron Messmer: {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}

Messmer had the advantage with the better ace and Bergman needed to improve in order to survive. The board ran out {8-Spades}{5-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds} and Messmer took the pot with top pair, top kicker to end Bergman's run in this event.
