Gaetan Balleur got a shove through and Michael Leon then three-bet jammed against Martin Ryan, who forfeited his open raise to 160,000.
Up next, Bill Kontaratos raised to 100,000 on the button and Gaetan Balleur moved all-in. The somewhat reluctant call by the Canadian followed and the cards were flipped over.
Bill Kontaratos: Ac10s
Gaetan Balleur: QhQs
Following a board of Js10h8s9hAh, Balleur initially sighed due to the ace on the river before he noticed the straight. Both stacks were counted and Balleur had 485,000 at his disposal, which covered Kontaratos.
Gaetan Balleur – 950,000
Bill Kontaratos – Eliminated in 6th Place ($2,900)
