Event #9: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Chris Hunichen Eliminated in 6th Place ($53,951)

• Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Chris Hunichen - 6th Place

Hand 22: Chris Hunichen opened to 50,000, Danny Nguyen called from the big blind, and the two saw a {k-Clubs}{6-Spades}{4-Spades} flop. Danny slid out a bet and Chris snap-shoved all in. Nguyen quickly called putting Hunichen at risk.

Nguyen: {k-Spades}{7-Spades}
Hunichen: {a-Spades}{3-Spades}

Hunichen was behind but had outs to a flush and his ace was live. The turn {2-Diamonds} and river {6-Hearts} gave no aid, however, and Hunichen was knocked out in sixth place.

This is the second straight year with a sixth-place finish for Hunichen, as he took sixth in last year's WSOP Millionaire Maker event for $229,575.
