Heinz Hits the Rail

Pius Heinz - eliminated.

While walking around the Imperial Ballroom, we saw that Team PokerStars Pro Pius Heinz was all in. We rushed to the table to see that it was actually a three-way all-in situation.

Heinz: {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Thomas Markussen: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}
Third Opponent: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}

While we were waiting for the cameras to arrive, we scanned the table to see that Heinz was in for his last 12,000 or so, and that the unknown opponent had both players covered. Markussen's aces held as the board ran {6-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}, eliminating the 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event champion from the tournament.

Also eliminated recently were Vanessa Rousso, Daniel Negreanu, and David Williams.
