Players Remaining: 5
Chip Average: 1,650,000
In the final hand of Level 23, the shortest stack at this final table was finally looked up, as Jordan Allan moved all-in and got called in two spots. Unfortunately, he was unable to score a triple up, with John Germano continuing his final table run with another elimination.
The hand was picked up with Allan moving all-in for 355,000 from the cutoff. Abraham Korotki, who was on the button, called and after some thought, John Germano did the same from the big blind.
Both Germano and Korotki checked the flop and then Germano moved all-in after the fell on the turn. Korotki quickly folded and the hands were then tabled, with Germano holding for a set and Allan searching for a spade on the river as he held .
The flush did not come in, as the completed the board, giving Germano a full house and scoring another quick knockout. Allan, who played nearly perfect short stack play for the last few levels, including the later portions of Day 2, will make just under $5,000 for his BPPS final table run.
The players are now on a quick break and a complete update of the remaining chip counts will be posted shortly.
