Hrabec Eliminates Tremzin

Jaxon • Level 32: 30,000-60,000, 7,500 ante

Gleb Tremzin lost most of his stack when his jacks didn't hold against the fours held by "yiliuqi" and was down to just three big blinds.

This went in as well from the big blind after he called a jam by Roman Hrabec from the button.

Gleb Tremzin: {10-Diamonds}{7-Spades}
Roman Hrabec: {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}

The {3-Spades}{j-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} board wasn't enough to save Tremzin and he was eliminated in 26th place.
