No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw

Naoya Kihara {8-}{7-}{6-}{5-}{2-} raised to 450,000 first to act.

Benny Glaser moved all in for 3,525,000 from the next position with {9-}{8-}{7-}{6-}{4-}. Yuri Dzivielevski and Dan Cates folded and Kihara made the call.

Kihara called and then stood put.

"It's so f*cked because I can't break this," said Glaser deliberating whether to draw.

"Would you think a bit more with a ten?" Glaser said while staring at Kihara. "Pat," he finally said, as Kihara's eight was enough to send Glaser to the rail in fourth place.

"Bad luck Benny," said Cates from the other end of the table.

"It's obviously very bittersweet," a crestfallen Glaser told Jeff Platt. "I had much higher hopes when I was chip leader. I'm obviously still happy and grateful to have come this far, but winning this would have meant everything.

"It's the best mixed game tournament on the planet and I love mixed games."
