Ihar Soika Eliminated in 9th Place ($50,678)

Valerie.Cross • Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Ihar Soika

Hand #6: Mark Sleet raised to 115,000 in middle position and got calls from Jacobson in the small blind and Ihar Soika in the big blind. All three players checked the {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds} flop, and the turn brought the {8-Hearts}.

Jacobson led 300,000, Soika called and Sleet made it 900,000. Jacobson folded and Soika went into the tank. He counted out his chips and thought for a while, eventually moving all in for just shy of 2 million total.

His shove was met with a quick call from Sleet, who had him in bad shape with boat over boat.

Ihar Soika: {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
Mark Sleet: {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}

The {5-Hearts} river was no help to Soika and he became the first casualty of the final table, taking $50,678 for his 9th-place finish.
