Kempe Falls Short of the Final Table

ajlamers • Level 37: 1,500,000-3,000,000, 1,500,000 ante

Aymon Hata raised to 7 million on the button and Rainer Kempe announced a raise to 30 million in the small blind, leaving himself with only 6 million behind. Aleksei Istomin used up a time extension in the big blind before re-shoving all in for around 50 million. Hata folded and the remaining two hands were tabled.

Kempe showed {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds} but was in a world of trouble against the {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} of Istomin. The flop of {j-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} gave Kempe a straight draw and some hope. However, the {6-Diamonds} on the turn and the {8-Hearts} on the river were no help and he was eliminated eighth place. The final seven players will now redraw for a seat at the unofficial final table.
