John Juanda open-shoved his last 191,000 from the hijack seat, and Ashton Griffin re-shoved on the button. Both blinds released, and we were off to the draw.

"Draw," the dealer announced.

"What?" Juanda asked.

"Draw," the dealer repeated.

Juanda didn't realized that Griffin was on the button, and re-checked his cards. He flashed the {k-Diamonds} to one side of the table (one of our reporters saw it) and then tossed it away. The dealer burned a card, dealt a card face down, and slit it to Juanda.

By this point, Griffin had spread {j-}{10-}{7-}{4-}{3-}, and Juanda turned over {9-}{7-}{5-}{2-}, then stood up.

"I only have to beat a jack?" Juanda asked. "I can sit back down now."

"He's Asian," Nick Schulman announced. "This could take awhile."

"No," Juanda said after looking at his card.

He turned over the {k-Hearts}, and looked confused.

"Did you give me the same card?" he asked the dealer, without the hint of a smile on his face.

Tournament Director "Redbull" Robbie Thompson and the dealer both verified that it was a different card, and Juanda was announced as the sixth-place finisher. Juanda stuck around for a few minutes, and requested that the staff check if the card was new, and not the one he discarded. After verification from the live stream, it was confirmed that Juanda was indeed given a new card.

Juanda will not being defending his title, but a fourth, fourth, first and sixth is still extremely impressive.
