Event #11 4th Place: Carl Fenske ($4,392)

At 6,000/12,000 blinds, James Karos raised to 40,000 before Carl Fenske moved all in. Action folded back to James who thought for awhile before calling for most of his chips. It was a good call as he had pocket jacks against Carl’s pocket sixes. A six in the window brought a big reaction, but there was a jack right behind it to give both players sets. Carl would need the last six in the deck to survive, but it did not come. Carl will exit Event #11 $365 NLH in 4th place, good for $4,392.

10th Place: Je Wook Oh ($11,159)

On one of the first hands of the final table, Je Wook Oh moved all in for roughly 160,000 after Joseph Johanssy opened the pot. Joseph made the call, and Je Wook’s AsKh would need to dodge Joseph’s JcTc. The 8cJs9h flop put Joseph way in front with top pair and a flush draw, and Je Wook was out of his chair by the time the 8d hit the turn. The 7c gave Joseph a straight to eliminate his opponent, and Je Wook Oh will exit Event #10 $1,675 Main Event in 10th place, good for $11,159.
