Samuel Gagnon Eliminated in 6th Place ($70,813)
Level 39 : 500,000-1,000,000, 1,000,000 ante
Hand #43: In the first hand after the break, Samuel Gagnon shoved all in for 6,100,000 on the button. Santiago Soriano called in the big blind.
The Canadian demonstratively slapped his aces open onto the felt and was in a great spot to double-up. However, the Spanish train is unstoppable today and kept rolling on as a devastating flop was dealt, giving Soriano a straight. The on the turn and on the river even improved him further to a flush, and Gagnon was eliminated just like that.
