Cornel Cimpan Eliminated in 10th Place ($19,580)

Cornel Cimpan

Cornel Cimpan moved all in for his last 210,000 from the hijack and was called by Brett Murray in the small blind.

Cornel Cimpan: {a-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Brett Murray: {a-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}

Cimpan had Murray dominated, but the way Murray has been running, the result felt inevitable.

The flop came {q-Spades}{9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}, pairing Murray's five immediately. The {5-Diamonds} on the turn soon followed to send the two-time WPT champ to the rail just short of the final table (with the inconsequential {3-Hearts} coming on the river).

The players have now taken a short break as preparations for the final table are made.
