Action folds to James McKinnon who shoves all in for 25,000 on the button. Tarun Gulati folds in the small blind, and Benny Bianca says, "I am calling blind," as he throws in a chip to call without ever looking at his cards.

McKinnon: AJ♣
Bianca: Q♠2

The board runs out 86♠3♣2♣3♠, giving Bianca two pair to win the pot, and eliminate McKinnon in 28th place, with 27 spots paid.

At the start of hand-for-hand play a few of the short stacks agreed to each put up $500 so that if one of them bubbled, they would make some money back. McKinnon starts to collect the money from the players as the pot is pushed over to Bianca.

Benny Bianca - 575,000
James McKinnon - Eliminated
