Thayer Rasmussen Eliminated in 7th Place ($31,278)

Thayer Rasmussen

Thayer Rasmussen just raised all in for 95,000 and he got called by Gavin Griffin who was on the button and Can Kim Hua who was in the small blind. John Racener was in the big blind with just 105,000 chips left behind and after giving it some thought he opted to fold.

The flop came down {10-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{5-Spades} and both players checked. The turn was the {2-Diamonds} and Hua bet 100,000, Griffin called. On the river the {9-Spades} hit and Hua bet another 100,000. Griffin immediately threw in 200,000 and the pressure was back on Hua. He gave it some thought before making the call leaving himself with just 45,000 chips left behind.

Griffin showed {Q-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} for the nut straight and Rasmussen was done, he showed {A-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{8-Hearts} and had failed to improve. Hua was frustrated and didn't want to show his cards, but since this was an all-in showdown the dealer tabled his {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{2-Hearts}. We are down to six players with two players in dire need of a double up.
