Steven Albini Eliminated in 12th Place ($40,694)

Steven Albini said "that isn't good" when his all in was called by John Holley. Albini held {a-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} and Holley {q-Spades}{q-Hearts}. Another player said he folded an ace, but Albini's son called for one anyway.

Seeing as it's Father's Day, the dealer obliged by dealing {k-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{8-Spades} on the flop. Albini's top pair wouldn't last through the {j-Spades} turn and {9-Spades} though, giving Holley the flush and eliminating Albini from the tournament.
