Ryan Hughes Eliminated in 9th Place ($55,093)

Ryan Hughes - 9th place

Ryan Hughes opened to 100,000 from the hijack seat and it was folded around to Vladimir Mefodichev on the button, who three-bet to 250,000. Both blinds folded and action was back on Hughes, who went all in for about 700,000. Mefodichev snap-called and Hughes was at risk.

Mefodichev: {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}
Hughes: {A-Hearts}{J-Spades}

The {10-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{J-Clubs} flop left Hughes with two pair and the lead, however, the {Q-Hearts} turn gave Mefodichev broadway. The {5-Clubs} river bricked for Hughes and he was eliminated in 9th place.

Mefodichev is up to 3.1 million.
