Billy Horan - 8th Place

Hand #4: Thayer Rasmussen won the pot with a raise to 40,000 from early position.

Hand #5: Dave D'Alesandro opened to 45,000 in middle position and won the pot.

Hand #6: Bob Bounahra raised to 45,000 in early position and Rasmussen called. Rasmussen bet the turn with the board having come {k-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{7-Clubs} after both players checked the flop, and Rasmussen won the pot.

Hand #7: D'Alesandro opened to 45,000, and Billy Horan shoved. D'Alesandro called after everyone else folded.

D'Alesandro: {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}
Horan: {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}

It was red aces versus black aces, and D'Alesandro was the one to flop the freeroll when the dealer spread {j-Spades}{7-Spades}{2-Clubs}. The {4-Spades} turn intensified the sweat, and the river brought the {5-Spades}, completing D'Alesandro's flush and sending Horan out in brutal fashion.
