Sharman Olshan Eliminated in 9th Place ($8,820)

ajlamers • Level 19: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Sharman Olshan

Chris Moorman opened to 27,000 from under the gun and Ryan Smith called from the cutoff. Harrison Gimbel also called on the button and Sharman Olshan pushed all in for 260,000 out of the big blind. Moorman asked for a count but then folded. Smith thought for a moment and elected to call while Gimbel got out of the way.

Ryan Smith: {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}
Sharman Olshan: {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}

The board ran out {9-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} and Smith's pair of jacks held on to eliminate Olshan in 9th place. That sets up the official final table of eight and the tournament director has stopped play for the night. The final eight players will return tomorrow and play down to a winner.
