We were keeping an eye on Terrence Chan, down to just 800 and folding his hand under the gun, when the table folded around to Steve Jelinek in the small blind who raised. Neil McFayden, sitting to Chan's right in the big blind, then reraised all in for around 16,000, and after some thought Jelinek called.
Jelinek had and McFayden . The board ran out . It took McFayden a moment to recognize that his set of aces had been beaten by Jelinek's straight, and with no low McFayden had been scooped.
McFayden then had to wait for the other tables to finish, hoping someone else short-stacked than he busted on this hand. But unfortunately for him no one did, meaning Chan and 116 others had made the cash.
