Bjorn Bouwmans raised to 1,200,000 from the cutoff. Tamir Segal shoved with the bigger stack on the button and Bouwmans called.

"I want to win! Call!" Bouwmans said.

Bjorn Bouwmans: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Tamir Segal: {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}

The flop came {8-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{5-Hearts} to keep Bouwmans ahead.

The turn was the {q-Clubs} for Segal to hit a pair of queens and leap ahead.

Bouwmans needed a king to be able to double up but the {j-Clubs} on the river wasn't that and Bouwmans was sent home in 9th place today after finishing in 24th place last year.

The eight remaining players were sent on a 15-minute break before the stream with hole cards will commence.
