Sergey Rybachenko - 10th Place
Ryan D'Angelo opened with a raise to 115,000 and Sergey Rybachenko came over the top for all of his chips. D'Angelo made the call.

D'Angelo: {K-Hearts}{J-Clubs}
Rybachenko: {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}

The flop came {9-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} to give Rybachenko a flopped set but the {10-Diamonds} on the turn and {Q-Spades} on the river gave D'Angelo a running straight to take down the pot and eliminate Rybachenko in 10th place for $46,386 in prize money.

Gomes Takes it Down Without a Flop

Marco Johnson bet 85,000 from early position, and the pot was raised to 300,000 by Alan Cutler on the button.

Alexandre Gomes then reraised all in for an additional 392,000.

Marco Johnson quickly folded, while Alan Cutler went into the tank.

"C'mon let's gamble," said Gomes.

Cutler folded, not wanting to go out on the bubble, and slipped to 710,000. Gomes moved his chip count up to 1,100,000.
