6th Place: Steve Kim ($76,850)

Level 23
Blinds: 15,000 - 25,000 with a 25,000 bb ante
Remaining: 5/440

Steve Kim moves in preflop for his last 710,000 and Sandeep Pulusani - the next to act - takes a reasonable amount of time before announcing he's also all-in for a much larger stack.

Everyone gets out of the way and Pulusani quickly flips up [Kc][Kd].

The sizable rail groans momentarily, then erupts when Kim shows [Ah][Ac]

The [7c][Ts][Qc] flop keeps Kim in the lead, and he turns [Ad] for a set, Pulusani down to a gutter Jack for Broadway.

Well, you see, what happened was ...

River [Jd]

The players at the table, the entire rail, even floor staff gathered around react with a wide variety of stunned comments and facial expressions as Kim is out.

Sandeep Pulusani - 3,150,000 (126bb)
Steve Kim - Eliminated in 6th place ($76,850)
