Coming into the final level there were five stacks over the 4M mark and Ciancio becomes the 3rd one to eliminate a player and increase his stack. He opened the pot from the cutoff with JxJx and was shoved on by Michael Marder on the button for just over 700k. Ciancio made the call and would be up against KxQx. Ciancio flopped a set and made a boat on the turn to leave Marder drawing dead.
Michael Marder is eliminated in 22nd place for $3,244.
