Nicco Maag Eliminated in 27th Place ($294,601)

Nicco Maag - 27th Place

From under the gun plus one, Nicco Maag raised all in for 1.11 million. Russell Thomas called from middle position and everyone else folded.

Maag held the {A-Hearts}{J-Spades} and was at risk to Thomas' {A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}. Not only was Maag at risk, but he was also dominated.

The flop came down {9-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{4-Clubs} and Maag didn't find much help there. On the turn, the {3-Clubs} fell and Maag was down to needing a jack and a jack only on the river. With the turn bringing a third club to the board, Maag couldn't hit the jack of clubs.

The {2-Clubs} fell on the river and finished off Maag while giving Thomas a flush. Maag was eliminated as the first player to go on the day and earned $294,601 for his finish in 27th place.
