Michael Stembera Eliminated in 10th Place ($100,689)

• Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante
Michael Stembera

Jonathan Dimmig opened from early position to 120,000 and Bradley Anderson called from the button. Michael Stembera moved all in from the big blind for 685,000 total. Dimmig got out of the way and with the pressure on and the chance to get to the official final table, Anderson ultimately made the call. It looked like a bad call when the hands were turned over:

Anderson {K-Diamonds}{J-Spades}
Stembera {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}

That all changed when the dealer fanned a flop of {Q-Spades}{J-Clubs}{2-Hearts} giving Anderson middle pair. The turn was the {9-Clubs} giving Stembera a ton of outs to survive. Any ace, ten, or club would give him the winning hand and double up.

It was not to be though as the river was the {5-Spades}. The players are now bagging and tagging for the night. We'll have the official chip counts shortly.
