Ryan Julius eliminated in 14th place.

Action had folded around to Yongjun Lu who moved all in for a total of 221,000. After a fold, Ryan Julius moved all in with his covering stack as well. Action folded to Hiren Patel on the button and he shoved all in with a covering stack on both players. Both blinds folded and the three went to a showdown.

Patel: {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs}
Lu: {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}
Julius: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}

Lu was well in the lead and looked like he would be earning a triple up. "No ace!" he begged to the dealer as the flop came out, but his wishes were not granted when it fell down {A-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}. The flop put Patel way out in the lead and left Lu looking for the last remaining king in the deck. The turn was the {5-Clubs} not improving any hands, but giving Patel a flush draw. It was the {Q-Clubs} that hit the river and though it looked like Julius would scoop the pot by making two pair, Patel was holding the {K-Clubs} and that gave him the winning nut flush allowing him to scoop the entire huge pot, eliminating two players in the process.
