Daniel Sewnig came into this final table as the shortest stack and while he got a few shoves through and made a pay jump, he was unlucky to be sent to the rail in 9th place.
That action was picked up pre flop, with Sewnig opening to 45,000 and after some folds, John Manzella put in a three-bet to 125,000 from late position. Sewnig counted his short stack and eventually elected to four-bet shove, with Manzella quickly calling, only to see that he was dominated.
Sewnig turned over and Manzella could only say, “What the hell is going on?” before turning over his own . After showing up late, he was at risk of losing another portion of his stack that was until he hit a two-outer to score the knockout.
The board ran out and Manzella fist pumped as the turn card fell, with Sewnig graciously accepting defeat despite the brutal beat. He’ll make just under $2,000 for his 9th place run and John Manzella is now peaking over the 1,000,000 chip mark.
