Hand #109: Santiago Soriano open-shoved from the small blind and Ben Underwood called all in for 22,800,000 in the big blind.

Santiago Soriano: {k-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}
Ben Underwood: {a-Spades}{9-Spades}

The {7-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{4-Spades} flop brought something to sweat for both players. While Soriano paired up his four, he was still a mathematical dog against Underwood's flush draw with overcards. The {2-Diamonds} turn kept Soriano in the lead and the {8-Hearts} river wasn't what Underwood needed either, ending another deep run for him.

After finishing fourth for $135,959 in Event #9: $600 No-Limit Hold'em Deepstack and fifth for $74,435 in Event #37: $800 No-Limit Hold'em Deepstack, the Deepstack crusher now added a third place to his resumé, worth $168,960.
