Shawn Roberts - 7th Place - $4,250


Shawn Roberts moves in for his last 7BB with A/4 and runs in to the 9/9 of Wilson Tolon. There's no ace on the flop or turn, no Barry Greenstein, and Roberts is out in 7th place, a $4,250 cash - 27x the buyin.

Wilson Tolon - 2.5 million

There was a brief talk about running ICM numbers but one player said no, so there's no talk of any ICM until another player is eliminated.

Jerry Jones - 8th Place - $3,350


Roland Quinones bets out 350,000 on a J-8-7-T board, and former national BMX cycling champ Jerry Jones (above) moves all in for his last 480,000.

Quinones hesitates to make the call despite the fact it is for barely more than a single bet, with the BB 100,000 at this level. He does find a call and turns over K/Q for an open-ended straight draw and two overs.

Jones shows Q/J for top pair, Queen kicker.

The river is a 9, giving Jones the Queen-high straight ... it gives Quinones, however, the King-high straight and Jones is out in 8th place, a $3,350 cash.

Roland Quinones - 4,000,000

The short-stack when final table play began, Graham moved all in with A/7 and was called by the K/Q of chipleader Ronald Quinones, who caught a Queen to eliminate Graham in 9th place.

Todd has final-tabled two of the three Catapult tournaments held here, fading more than 2300 players in doing so,
