Kenny Shih - 18th Place

Kenny Shih was under the gun and raised to 525,000. Action folded to John Hewitt in the big blind and he made the calling, checking the {A-Clubs}{6-Spades}{7-Clubs} afterwards. Shih responded with a continuation bet of 700,000, Hewitt check-raised to 2 million, and Shih moved all in. Hewitt made the call and the cards were turned up.

Showdown
Shih: {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}
Hewitt: {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}

Shih's eights were technically ahead, but the overs and nut-flush draw of Hewitt essentially made it a flip. Unfortunately for Shih, the {2-Clubs} spiked on the turn to give Hewitt the flush and the win. The {7-Spades} was run out on the river for good measure, as Shih made his way to the payout desk in 18th place.
