6th Place: Rainer Kempe ($188,460)

Rainer Kempe was all in holding [As][9c] and was up against Chino Rheem's [Kh][Kd]. The [7h][6h][3h] left Rainer drawing slim, and the [3d] on the turn changed nothing. Rainer would need a non heart ace or nine to survive, but the [8s] hit the river instead. Rainer Kempe will be our 6th place finisher, collecting $188,460. Chino will collect the last Shooting Star bounty in the tournament, and play will continue five handed.
