The short stack when the final table started, Frederick Arni quickly fell below 1,500,000 and then dropped to 990,000 after losing a small pot to Adam Geyer. Arni shoved that stack in the middle from the small blind with K♦10♠ and Geyer was right behind with A♦2♦. The J♥10♥5♠ flop put Arni ahead for a brief moment but the A♥ turn put Geyer back in front. The 5♣ river was no help and Arni is out in ninth. Mo Arani is the new short stack with 1,850,000, almost 20 big blinds.
Geyer is up to 7,810,000 and for the time being, is in front of Matt Yorra for second place.
