14th place: William Derego ($5,345)

Paull Nguyen moves all in and awaits a call
Level 21

From late position, Paul Nguyen moves all in for around 375,000 and action folds to William Derego in the big blind. William is sitting on a covered stack of under 300,000 and elects to make the call with [Ad][Kd]. It's a flip, but Paul has the advantage with his [4s][4d]. The [Kc][2h][As] flop gives William a 90% chance to win the hand and survive. The [2d] further increases his lead, but the unlikely [4c] on the river has the table explode with excitement. The stacks are counted down to confirm that William Derego has indeed been eliminated. He gives Paul a congratulatory fistbump and headed to the cage to collect his $5,345 payout.
