6th Place: Joe Elpayaa ($128,200)

Joe Elpayaa moved all in preflop with [Qh][Js] and was called by Andrew Badecker in the big blind, who woke up with [Kd][Kc].  Andrew actually had less chips, so he was the one at risk.  The board ran out [Ac][5s][3s][6c][Ad], and Joe was left with just 35,000 chips.

On the next hand, Joe got the last of his chips in with [Ac][6c] against Andrew's [Kd][Jh].  Andrew got the rest of Joe's chips when the board ran out [Jd][9h][8h][3c][9d].

Joe Elpayaa will receive $128,200 for his 6th place finish.
