JC Tran Eliminated in 10th Place ($37,125)

Chad_Holloway • Level 32: 100,000-200,000, 200,000 ante
J.C. Tran
J.C. Tran

JC Tran moved all in for roughly 2.7 million from the cutoff and action folded to Abhinav Iyer, who called out of the big blind.

Tran: {k-Diamonds}{10-Spades}
Iyer: {5-}{5-}

It was a flip but not after the flop fell {a-Spades}{5-Spades}{9-Clubs} to give Iyer a set.

The {2-Hearts} turn left Tran drawing dead and he headed for the payout desk after the meaningless {6-Hearts} was run out on the river.

Christopher Fisher Eliminated in 11th Place ($37,125)

Chad_Holloway • Level 32: 100,000-200,000, 200,000 ante

Christopher Fisher moved all in for 1.3 million from the hijack and Shaun Deeb called next to act. The rest of the players folded and the hands were turned up.

Fisher: {a-Spades}{7-Diamonds}
Deeb: {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts}

Fisher's best shot at staying alive was to catch an ace, but he didn't find one as the board ran out a dry {2-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{3-Hearts}.

Jacob Seale moved all in for 900,000 under the gun and Sammy Lafleur isolated with a three-bet from the cutoff.

Seale: {q-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Lafleur: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}

The {a-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{7-Spades} flop delivered Lafleur top set and Seale was left drawing to runner-runner straight outs.

The {j-Diamonds} turn took away any chance of that happening and Seale hit the rail after the {6-Diamonds} was run out on the river.

Usman Siddique: {a-Spades}{10-Spades}
Denis Gnidash: {10-}{2-Spades}
Sergio Aguilar: {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}
