Event #69: $1,000 Mini Main Event

Matthew Kurtz Eliminated in 26th Place; Peter Lubrano Eliminated in 25th Place ($21,411)

• Level 36: 300,000-600,000, 600,000 ante
Matthew Kurtz

Matthew Kurtz had dropped down in the counts and the shortest stack on the table and sat in the big blind. There was an all in from Peter Lubrano under the gun and Yi Ma called before the action folded to Kurtz, who was getting an excellent price to call the rest. He made the call and they turned over their hands.

Yi Ma: {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Peter Lubrano: {7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}
Matthrew Kurtz: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}

With a set for Ma on the {9-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} flop, Kurtz was drawing dead to a chop and Lubrano needed an eight for a straight. It was all over when the turn paired the {9-Spades}, giving Ma a boat and the {q-Hearts} didn't matter. He is the runaway chip leader at the moment, with a cool 50 million chips.
