The action folds around to Thomas Diesner (pictured), who moves all-in for his last 45,000. Alex Marler reshoves for 270,000, and everyone else folds.

Thomas Diesner - T♠8♠
Alex Marler - A♦K♠

"I like your hand," Marler says, and the two share a laugh. The board brings a sweat on the turn when it comes Q♠5♣7♥9♣, giving Diesner an open-ended straight draw to go with his pair outs. But none of them arrive as the Q♣ hits the river.

Diesner finishes 15th in the Main Event and earns $2,702.
