Event 20: Andy Santiago - 6th Place

$1000 + $90 No Limit Hold'em (6-Max)

Andy Santiago - 6th Place - $14,819

Andy Santiago's A-9 fell to John's QQ on a clean board.

Santiago enjoyed a chip lead for a lot of the tournament and predicted a win early on.
Just fell short but still cashed large for $14,819.

The hand that crippled him and perhaps started to steam him a bit, occurred when two tables were left, as when Billy
Pilossoph had AA and he had 3-3.

Andy played a set of threes on the flop perfectly, getting Bill to re-raise all in with Aces.

If Andy's set holds he would have jumped to 2.5 million in chips.

Alas, Billy spiked the only card he needed (an ace) for a bigger boat - Aces full of threes.
