10th Place: Aaron Mermelstein ($2,035)

The SugarRush Challenge final table was not short on action in the early going as short stacks across the oval found double ups to stay alive. All short stacks, expect Aaron Mermelstein. Mermelstein treaded water with all ins being shipped around him but when he attempted an all-in of his own, it was unlucky timing.

From early position, Mermelstein shoved for 525,000 and found a caller in David McConachie. Mermelstein had a quality hand in 10♣10 but McConachie had a slightly better one with JJ♠. The 4♣3♣2 flop cracked open the backdoor for Mermelstein as he found two clubs. Mermelstein was granted additional outs on the 7♣ turn but could not catch the most crucial of clubs on the K♠ river.

McConachie has been the busiest player at the final table at now has a stack of 2,900,000 to show for it, good for the current chip lead.
