Sometimes poker just isn't fair. Jeffrey Papola raised to 60,000 on the button, and Darren Elias moved all in from the big blind for an extra 274,000. Papola called to put him at risk.
The flop was clean for Elias. The turn gave Papola a gutshot and meant Elias had to dodge four jacks and three kings. But seven outs was too many as the spiked on the river. Elias shook hands with his eliminator and wished all of the players good luck, taking his beat like a gentlemen on his way out in eighth place.
With Darren's elimination, the final seven have paused to redraw to one unofficial final table.
