Sy Israel, after doubling up through Ralph Murphy almost immediately sent those chips to Sharman Olshan when her [Qh][Qc] beat Sy's [Qs][Js] all-in pre-flop.
Sy would then be crippled and left to his final few big blinds and after the level went up, his shove from the button represented close to 10% of Spirito's stack.
Spirito would call with "live cards", but would actually be flipping as he held [10h][9h] and Sy held [6d][6s].
Pocket sixes haven't fared very well at this Final Table and they'd lose another race this time around as the board ran out [Kh][7d][7h][2h][Js] with Spirito completing his flush and the elimination on the turn.
Sy would be sent to the rail in 7th place and Spirito is now controlling just over 1,100,000 chips, close to a third of the total chips in play.
But, while Spirito might be the "big" stack at this table, he still only has close to 25 big blinds to work with, just showing how "short" this entire table actually is.
