No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw

On the first hand back from break, Ryan Hughes opened with a raise to 17,000. Action folded to Maco Johnson, who moved all in with a shorter stack. Before the dealer could finish counting, Hughes called.

Johnson stood pat.

"I have a straight, Hughes said, then took one.

Johnson showed {10-}{8-}{4-}{3-}{2-} for a ten-eight smooth, while Hughes had {8-}{6-}{5-}{4-}. He needed a nine, three, or two to eliminate Johnson. His last card was a {3-} and that did it.

Johnson was eliminated in eighth place, collecting $12,390 for his efforts.

The final seven players are now redrawing for seats at the unofficial final table.
