James Mackey Eliminated in 8th Place ($61,931)

ajlamers • Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
James Mackey

Eric Blair opened to 85,000 from under the gun and James Mackey ripped in the last of his 715,000 on the button. The blinds folded and Blair quickly called as he tabled the superior hand.

Eric Blair: {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}
James Mackey: {k-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

The flop came {a-Hearts}{j-Spades}{j-Diamonds} and Blair was still comfortably in the lead. However, the {q-Clubs} on the turn gave Mackey a straight and Blair couldn't believe it. There was still one card to come and it was the {k-Spades} as Blair improved to a full house to eliminate Mackey in eighth place.

The final seven players will now redraw for seats at the unofficial final table. With one more elimination, play will halt for the day and the final six players will return for the official final table tomorrow.
