Matt Marafioti Eliminated in 11th Place ($72,520)

Matt Marafioti - Out.

Matt Marafioti has been nursing his stack for the majority of the day today, and moments ago, when the action folded to him in the small blind, he shoved for his last 160,000 or so. Jason Koon called in the big blind, and the hands were opened.

Marafioti: {7-Diamonds}{7-Spades}
Koon: {a-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}

Marafioti was ahead, and remained ahead after the flop fell {q-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{10-Spades}. The {a-Spades} spiked on the turn however, and Marafioti was one card away from elimination. The {6-Hearts} completed the board, missing Marafioti, and he was indeed eliminated from the tournament.
