Jeff "mavsusc" Platt Eliminated in 7th Place ($12,657.22)

BrandonTemple • Level 41: 120,000-240,000, 30,000 ante

Joon "jykpoker" Kim jammed in the small blind, and Jeff "mavsusc" Platt tanked for a short time in the big blind before calling off his last 3,312,484.

Jeff "mavsusc" Platt: {k-Hearts}{2-Hearts}
Joon "jykpoker" Kim: {q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

Platt's king-high call preflop had him ahead of Kim's queen-nine, but the {q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{10-Spades} flop was unforgiving, as Kim found top pair and a gutshot for the lead. The {3-Spades} turn and {4-Spades} river wouldn't bring Platt a king, and the PokerNews Podcast co-host was left with 7th place and $12,657.22 for his deep run.

Kim Doubles Through Steinman

BrandonTemple • Level 41: 120,000-240,000, 30,000 ante

Ian "APokerJoker2" Steinman jammed in the small blind, and Joon "jykpoker" Kim called off his last 2,583,962 in the big blind.

Ian "APokerJoker2" Steinman: {2-Spades}{2-Diamonds}
Joon "jykpoker" Kim: {a-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}

Kim got no help on the {k-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} flop, but binked the {a-Diamonds} on the turn to take a commanding lead. The {8-Spades} river didn't deliver Steinman a set, and Kim doubled up.

Jonathan "fan_sawyer21" Love Eliminated in 8th Place ($9,559.67)

BrandonTemple • Level 40: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 ante

Eric "CircleBall" Baldwin jammed for 2,716,220 from the cutoff, and Jonathan "fan_sawyer21" Love called off their last 2,579,578 on the button.

Jonathan "fan_sawyer21" Love: {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Eric "CircleBall" Baldwin: {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}

Baldwin picked up four more outs on the {6-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{7-Spades} flop with a gutshot, and the {9-Diamonds} turn paired Baldwin up and left Love looking for an ace to double or an eight to chop. The {5-Clubs} river was safe for Baldwin, and Love exited in 8th.

Joseph "thehofffx" Hoffman Eliminated in 9th Place ($7,316.62)

Chad_Holloway • Level 40: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 ante

Lee "smallmytable" Gale moved all in for 1,896,108 and Joseph "thehofffx" Hoffman called off for 1,705,896 from the button. Both blinds folded and it was off to the races.

Lee "smallmytable" Gale: {j-Clubs}{j-Hearts}
Joseph "thehofffx" Hoffman: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

The {6-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} flop kept Gale in the lead, but the {8-Hearts} turn gave Hoffman a flush draw to go with his overs. It didn't come in though as the {q-Spades} peeled off on the river and allowed Gale to score the knock out.

"smallmytable" and Baldwin Chop One Up

BrandonTemple • Level 40: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 ante

"smallmytable" jammed for 2,058,608 from under the gun, and Eric "CircleBall" Baldwin tanked for a bit, then three-bet shoved for 3,178,720 from the cutoff.

"smallmytable": {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds}
Eric "CircleBall" Baldwin: {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}

Baldwin picked up some chop outs on the {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{8-Spades} flop, and added a flush draw on the {4-Diamonds} turn. The {4-Clubs} river gave both players nines and fours with an ace-kicker, and they chopped up the pot.
