Jason Lester Eliminated in 9th Place ($168,529)

Jason Lester shakes George Lind's hand, as he busts out in 9th place.

Limit Hold'em

Minh Ly raised, Jason Lester re-raised, and Ly called. The flop came down {a-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}, and Lester got the rest his chips in the middle. Ly called.

Lester: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}
Ly: {a-Diamonds}{8-Spades}

Lester held a commanding lead, that is until the {8-Clubs} spiked on the turn, giving Ly two pair. Lester slapped the table in disgust, and now needed either a jack or a king to survive.

The river was a meaningless {3-Hearts} however, and Lester is our ninth place finisher.

The players are now on a short break so that the production crew can set some things up for the official final table!
