The increase in blinds for Level 23 put even more pressure on short-stacked Rob Sinning, who was already on the low end to begin with. Sinning laddered up a few pay jumps at the final table but never found the right spot to double up and get his championship hopes back on track.
Under 10 big blinds, Sinning moved all-in for 178,000 from the hijack. Action folded to Shannon Shorr in the small blind, who re-shoved for 448,000 total. Klajdi Lika looked at his cards in the big blind and thought for a moment but eventually better of the spot and folded.
Lika made the correct decision to fold as Shorr flipped up K♣K♥ leaving Sinning’s A♥10♣ drawing thin. Sinning didn’t improve past the 8♦7♦2♥ flop and exits in sixth place.
Joe Palma is the new short stack with 450,000 and Kurt Lichtman isn’t too far ahead, with 525,000 with the blinds soon to go up.
