Richard Kirsch - 20th Place

Jamie Armstrong opened for 20,000 under the gun and Richard Kirsch called him from the small blind. The big got out of the way and it was heads-up action to the {a-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} flop. Kirsch was first to act and wasted little time in moving all in for right around 135,000. Armstrong called.

Kirsch: {j-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Armstrong: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

Kirsch flopped a flush draw and decided to play it strong. Unfortunately for him it did pan out as the {Q-Spades} blanked on the turn followed by the {J-Spades} on the river. Kirsch became the day's first casualty and will take home $16,220 for his 20th-place finish.
