After an excruciating 90-minute money bubble, Joseph Kuether was forced all in for 8,000 as the big blind ante. At the Aria, the ante is paid before the big blind and therefore Kuether was only playing to get his 8,000 chips back. Govert Metaal raised to 28,000 in the hijack and the rest of the table folded.
The flop came and Kuether would need runner-runner outs in order to stay alive. The turn brought the to give Metaal a full house and Kuether was drawing dead to the on the river.
The remaining 79 players will each be guaranteed at least $20,000 and the hand-for-hand process is now finished.
