No Bananas for Kaczka

• Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

A short-stacked Harry "Ugotabanana" Kaczka shoved all in for 179,000 from the under-the-gun position and Brian "$tinger88" Hastings called him from late position. The rest of the players got out of the way and the cards were turned up.

Kaczka: {k-Clubs}{j-Clubs}
Hastings: {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

Kaczka was behind, but he was drawing to two live cards. He found one of them too as the {j-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{10-Diamonds} gave him the lead with jacks. The {4-Hearts} turn meant Kaczka was one card away from doubling, but then the {A-Clubs} spiked on the river to give Hastings a winning pair of aces.

Kaczka was eliminated in 162nd place, which was the next rung in the pay ladder, meaning he'll take home $52,141.
