Christopher Chung raised from the cutoff and John Racener defended.

They both checked through the {a-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} flop to the {q-Diamonds} on the turn. Racener bet, Chung raised, Racener reraised for Chung to call for his last 105,000 in total.

Christopher Chung: {a-Spades}{2-Spades}
John Racener: {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}

Chung had flopped top pair while Racener had hit a set. Chung was already drawing dead and the {6-Diamonds} on the river didn't matter as he was eliminated in eighth place.

The seven remaining players were sent for a ten-minute break while the table is getting prepared for the PokerGO stream which will go live at 5:30 p.m. PST.
