Preben Stokkan Eliminated in 21st Place ($324,650)

Outer Table Hand #33: Zhen Cai raised to 1,300,000 in middle position and Preben Stokkan shoved all in for 11,550,000 from the button. The blinds folded, and Cai called.

Cai: {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}
Stokkan: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}

Stokkan was at risk with his suited over cards against Cai's pair, and when the dealer spread the {3-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{7-Spades} flop, Cai soared into the outright lead.

Stokkan would need a combination of runner-runner cards to stay alive with either running diamonds or a queen and jack.

The turn fell the {q-Spades} to keep Stokkan with outs to a jack, but when the {4-Spades} completed the board on the river, he would be eliminated in 21st place for a $324,650 payday.
