Sean Rice was able to double his short stack a mere two hands earlier, but found himself all in during this hand against chip leader Brian Meinders.

Rice raised preflop only to have Meinders three-bet. It folded back to Rice who four-bet and Meinders capped the action. The two saw a flop of {8-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{K-Spades} and Rice got the rest of his stack in on this board.

Rice: {A-Hearts}{9-Hearts}
Meinders: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}

Rice had an ace-high but Meinders was holding a higher one. The board completed with the {4-Clubs} and {2-Hearts} and just like that Rice was sent to the rail, collecting $11,992 in prize money.
