Event #9: $25,000 Challenge

Dominik Nitsche Eliminated in 9th Place (AU$87,840)

Chad_Holloway • Level 18: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Dominik Nitsche - 9th Place

In the very next hand after Eugene Katchalov was eliminated, Steve O'Dwyer raised to 37,000 under the gun and when action reached Dominik Nitsche in the small blind, he three-bet all in for approximately 200,000 total. Chance Kornuth folded from the big blind and O'Dwyer snap-called.

O'Dwyer: {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}
Nitsche: {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades}

Nitsche was on the wrong end of the cooler, and he paid for it with his tournament life after the board ran out a dry {j-Clubs}{6-Spades}{10-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}.

Just one more player needs to fall before the final table of seven is established.
