Richard Yong - 8th Place

Hand #22: On the first hand back from the break, David Einhorn kicked things off on the button. From the hijack seat, Sam Trickett raised to one million and won the pot.

Hand #23: Guy Laliberté had the button and action folded to Richard Yong. He raised all in from the hijack seat for 3.3 million and play folded to Brian Rast in the small blind. Rast reraised all in for 8.925 million and Phil Hellmuth folded from the big blind.

Rast held the {K-Spades}{J-Hearts} and Yong the {A-Clubs}{2-Hearts}. Yong was the player at risk in the hand.

The flop came down {7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs} and Yong stayed in front with two more cards to come. The turn brought the {2-Spades} and Rast was down to the river to try and bust Yong.

After a pause, Shaun "Shaun the Dealer" Harris dealt the {K-Diamonds} on the river and an explosion of cheers came from Rast's cheering section. Rast stood from his chair, arms held high above his head and celebrated his moment. Yong was all smiles was he shook the hands of everyone before leaving the stage.
