Andras "probirs" Nemeth Eliminated in 8th Place ($56,705)

connorrichards • Level 24: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Lex "L. Veldhuis" Veldhuis opened to 164,000 from UTG+1 and Andras "probirs" Nemeth defended in the big blind, and then check-raised to 439,200 on the {4-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{j-Spades} flop. Veldhuis called. Nemeth slowed down on the {7-Spades} turn but called when Veldhuis bet 440,000. The river brought the {k-Spades} and Veldhuis bet enough to put his opponent all-in for 1.4 million when checked to.

Nemeth called and showed a flush with {9-Spades}{4-Spades}, but it was no good against the Veldhuis' better flush with {q-Spades}{10-Spades}. Nemeth was eliminated in eighth place and Veldhuis took a commanding chip lead after entering Day 2 as the short stack.
