Steve Mager

Action folded to Steve Mager on the button, and he pushed his 106,000 chips across the line. Small blind Marcel Pruden reraised over top to make it 265,000 to go, forcing the big blind out of the hand.

With cards exposed, Pruden was the slight favorite with pocket nines against the {K-Hearts}{10-Spades} of Mager. The flop came down {Q-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} giving Pruden trips, but leaving Mager with the redraw to the straight. When the {Q-Spades} hit the turn, Pruden boated up and left Mager drawing dead. To add insult to injury, the {J-Hearts} on the river gave Mager his straight, but he was still way behind the full house of Pruden.

Mager won $4,022 for the seventh-place finish.
