Shortly after the conclusion of the chip negotiations, Julie Le was all-in and at risk. The shortest of the remaining stacks, Le needed to win a few pots to keep her title hopes alive but Martins Kleins put an end to that.
Le shoved for 1,400,000 on the button and Kleins called in the big blind. Le turned over 5♠3♠ and had plenty of work to do against the J♦J♠ of Kleins. The 9♦9♥7♠10♦2♥ board was all good for Kleins and he secured the knockout. Kleins chips up to 5,565,000 and is right behind Nick Singhal and Stephen Song on the leaderboard while Edward Poland ladders up another pay spot.
