Down to just a few big blinds and merely folds in front of him, George Xu opened for pot from the button committing the majority of his chips.
Phil Riley, his neighbor in the small blind, repotted and the big blind folded. Xu added the remainder of his chips to get to showdown.
The board ran out and just like that, Xu exited in 10th place.
Xu, who won this very event two years ago, takes home $11,596 for his deep run. The remaining nine players are now guaranteed $14,904.
