• Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante
Clayton Hamm - 56th place

Andrey Zaichenko opened to 125,000, sending Clayon Hamm into the tank in the next seat over. After about two minutes, he announced an all in raise for 715,000 total.

Mark Newhouse was on the button and wasted little time cutting out a re-raise to 1.5 million. Action fell on Brian Roberts in the small blind and suddenly he went into the tank. About three minutes passed before Roberts threw his hand into the muck. Aaron Kaiser and Zaichenko folded their cards as well, allowing the two active hands to be turned over.

Hamm: {A-Spades}{10-Hearts}
Newhouse: {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

The flop came down {6-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{K-Spades}, keeping Newhouse's pocket tens in the lead. The {6-Diamonds} paired the board on the turn, meaning Hamm needed to catch one of the remaining aces to stay alive. The {9-Hearts} finished off the board and Hamm was eliminated from play.

Newhouse picked up the pot and his stack now sits at 6.485 million.
