Fabian Ortiz Eliminated in 8th Place ($173,220)

Josh_Cahlik • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 5,000 ante
Fabian Ortiz - 8th Place

Fabian Ortiz raised to 135,000 from under the gun. Mike McDonald looked at his cards from the next seat over and cut out a three-bet to 325,000. Action folded back to Ortiz and he announced a four-bet ship all in. McDonald called and the cards were tabled.

Ortiz: {A-Spades}{K-Hearts}
McDonald: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}

The two were flipping for Ortiz's tournament life and he looked to improve on the community cards. The {3-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} flop did nothing for Ortiz and he was still left searching for an ace or king on the next two streets. Ortiz picked up a few more outs with the {5-Spades} on the turn, but he ultimately did not get there as the {9-Diamonds} completed the board.

Ortiz became the first casualty of the final table and will collect $173,220 in prize money. McDonald scooped up the pot and is now sitting on 7.815 million in chips.
