Yohannes Ambaye Eliminated in 9th Place ($11,366)

HillKerby • Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Yohannes Ambaye

Bobby Garcia raised to 150,000 in early position and Yohannes Ambaye three-bet to 400,000 in the cutoff. Action folded back to Garcia and he announced he was all in, with Ambaye calling his remaining stack of less than 200,000 to put himself at risk for his tournament life.

Yohannes Ambaye: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Bobby Garcia: {a-Hearts}{9-Hearts}

"Nice hand," said Garcia after seeing Ambaye's big slick, but he found a three outer on the turn of a runout {5-Spades}{q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{7-Clubs} to improve to queens and nines and eliminate Ambaye as the first casualty of the final table.
