Eric Shanks - 12th Place

Thayer Rasmussen opened for a raise under the gun, and Eric Shanks pushed all in from the next spot for about 275,000. Action folded to Rasmussen, who quickly called.

Rasmussen: {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}
Shanks: {a-Clubs}{6-Clubs}

The flop brought a pair: {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}, which prompted Shanks to ask for another ten to grab a chop. The {3-Hearts} and {8-Diamonds} turn and river didn't do it for him, though, and Rasmussen added more to his tournament-best stack.
