Brandon Shack-Harris' run at extended his lead in the WSOP Player of the Year has fallen short in this event after just being eliminated in a preflop clash against two players. It began when Tony Hachem opened to 800 from the cutoff. Shack-Harris made it 1,900 on button, the small blind four-bet to 4,500, and Hachem folded. Shack-Harris called and then called off when the small blind jammed the flop.
Neither the turn nor river connected with Shack-Harris' pocket jacks and he was sent to the rail just a few minutes shy of reaching level eight.
