David Steicke opened for 36,000 and received a call from Yevgeniy Timoshenko on the button. A short-stacked Paul Newey then raised the pot (170,000) from the small blind, the big folded, and Steicke got out of the way. Timoshenko eyed up Newey's remaining chips — just 40,000 — and then moved all in. Newey called off and the cards were turned up.
It was a flip, but Newey needed to improve to stay alive. The flop gave him a gutshot straight to a jack, but it also took away some of his outs as a spade would now give Timoshenko a flush. As it turned out, the turn and river both blanked and Timoshenko's pocket pair held.
"As soon as I seen them I knew I was done," Newey said as he shook Timoshenko's hand. He then explained that pocket nines had done him in several times this week.
