3rd Place: Shooting Star Dan Shak ($200,055)

Level 25
Blinds: 25,000-50,000 with a 50,000 bb ante
Remaining: 2/440

There is 375,000 in the pot, and the flop reads [Ks][Qh][5h] when Shooting Star Dan Shak bets 200,000 from the button. Ryan Tosoc check-raises to 725,000 from the small blind, and Shak reraises all in for 3.76 million. Tosoc calls to cover him so they flip over their cards.

Tosoc: [Kd][Qs]
Shak: [Kh][Jh]

Turn and River: [9d][Jd]

Shak is eliminated in third place, good for $200,055, and Tosoc stacks up 12.45 million after the hand. Shak is the final Shooting Star to fall, and he signs his bounty shirt for Tosoc before leaving the final table. Tosoc will also receive Shak's $2,000 Shooting Star bounty.

Ryan Tosoc - 12,450,000 (209 bb)
Sandeep Pulusani - 5,150,000 (83 bb)
