In the last hand before the break, Hakim Hadj opened with a raise to 52,000 in early position. With the redraw, Arron Fletcher now had direct position on Hadj and three-bet to 145,000. Hadj moved all in for 830,000, but when Fletcher snap-called he knew he was in a world of hurt.
The flop brought more outs for Hadj, who picked up a flush draw to go with his eights. However, the turn and river were blanks, ending Hadj's run in 15th place.
