The end of Andrew Mellado's tournament began when Yann Dion opened the button. Mellado was in the big blind and he moved his stack all in. Dion made the call and the two players turned their hands over.
Mellado was up out of his chair by this point, asking for a nine to be dealt. The flop didn't listen to him, being dealt out . This is when cries for a deuce started coming. The on the turn was close to his wishes, but the on the river would devastate his tournament and send him out the door in 24th place. Mellado was the first player to receive the new payout amount of $45,000 AUD.
