David Welch and Steve Nooralian were both very short stacked at the end of the level and both are now at the payout desk.
Welch shoved for A♦9♦ for 525,000 and Ara Abkarian called with A♠K♥. The board ran all dry for Welch and he takes home $11,551.
Next up was Nooralian, who was taken out by Jeffrey Schwartz. Nooralian was all-in for only 300,000 with Q♥J♥ and Schwartz found 10♣10♠. A ten hit the flop and Nooralian earns $14,565 for a finish that could have been much more.
