Dan Smith - 6th Place

Hand #58: Mustapha Kanit raised to 48,000 from under the gun, Dan Smith moved all in for 444,000 out of the small blind, and Kanit called.

Kanit: {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}
Smith: {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

"Four forty-four?" Smith said. "Good omen. Guaranteed winner. Four-four-four flop."

The flop wasn't all fours, but the {j-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} board gave Smith two backdoor draws. The {k-Diamonds} on the turn kept both of them alive, and Smith looked excited.

"Can I sweat the river?" he asked, wanting to peel the river card on his own.

The dealer burned one last card, then spiked the {k-Spades} on the river.

"What the hell!" Smith yelled out, grinning.

He hit the rail in sixth place, earning $95,515, while Kanit chipped up to 1.17 million.
