Gabe Kaplan was just eliminated in the final hand of the night. Kaplan was all in on 4th street and there was a side pot between Freddy Deeb and Thor Hansen. When all the cards were dealt, here's what the players showed:
Deeb and Hansen had betting action on every street including 3 raises on the river that ended with Hansen calling Deeb's reraise and leaving himself with 35K. When Hansen called, Deeb immediately said "Four Sixes." Kaplan mucked and Hansen stood in disbelief. Hansen is left with 35K chips for tomorrow's final table and Gabe Kaplan was eliminated in 9th place earning himself $131,424 for his strong finish.
