Ray Ellis - 13th Place

Ray Ellis started Day 4 of the Aussie Millions Main Event as the chip leader, and nine and a half hours later, he's been eliminated.

He and Sam Cohen were heads up on a board of {7-Spades}{q-Spades}{9-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}. Cohen checked, Ellis fired 58,000, and Cohen called. The river was the {9-Diamonds}, Cohen led out for 105,000, and Ellis called. Cohen tabled {k-Hearts}{10-Spades} for the nut-straight, and Ellis mucked.

The very next hand, Ellis open-shoved for around 360,000 in the cutoff seat, and Jay Tan re-shoved from the button. The blinds released, and the hands were tabled:

Ellis: {a-Clubs}{9-Clubs}
Tan: {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

The board ran out {6-Spades}{4-Spades}{3-Clubs}{q-Spades}{2-Spades}, and Ellis was eliminated in 13th place.

We will now combine to the final two tables.
