Joep van den Bijgaart Eliminated in 10th Place ($12,682)

Joep van den Bijgaart - 10th place
Joep van den Bijgaart - 10th place

Two hands spelled the end of Joep van den Bijgaart's run.

In the first, van den Bijgaart raised from under the gun, Marco Johnson three-bet from the small blind, and van den Bijgaart called. The flop came {J-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{6-Hearts}, Johnson bet, and van den Bijgaart called. The Dutchman also called Johnson's bet after the {8-Clubs} turn, a bet which left Johnson with but 4,000 behind.

Johnson tossed his last 4,000 out in the dark before the {A-Clubs} fell, and when van den Bijgaart called, Johnson showed {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades} and van den Bijgaart mucked. Both players exhaled — Johnson with a thankful look for surviving, and van den Bijgaart with a more weary expression, as that hand had knocked him down under 35,000.

Soon after van den Bijgaart was opening from the cutoff and Hans Minocha called from the small blind. Minocha check-called bets on both the {3-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{A-Hearts} flop and {5-Hearts} turn, and van den Bijgaart had but about 5,000 left to toss out after the {7-Clubs} river which Minocha called.

The all-in player tabled his hand — {A-Spades}{5-Clubs} — saying "probably not good?" Indeed it wasn't, as Minocha had the better two pair with {A-Clubs}{J-Spades}, and van den Bijgaart is out in 10th.
