Charles Mitchell

Eric Smidinger raised to 2,700,000 on the button and Ben Sarnoff called from the small blind. Charles Mitchell jammed all in for 13,300,000 and both players called.

The flop came {j-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{5-Spades} and with the action still live on the side pot, both Sarnoff and Smidinger checked to the {9-Diamonds} on the turn and the {4-Spades} on the river.

Mitchell turned over {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds} but was bested by the {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades} of Sarnoff who flopped a pair of jacks. Smidinger's cards went into the muck but he said he held {6-}{6-}. Mitchell was eliminated in third place and Sarnoff will take a commanding chip lead into the heads-up match.
