Ruben Visser Eliminated in 8th Place ($156,400)

Ruben Visser - 8th place

Kyle Julius was in early position with {A-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds}, and he opened the pot to 325,000. Over on the button, Ruben Visser peeked down at {6-Clubs} {6-Spades}, and that was good enough to three-bet shove for 865,000 total. When it came back to Julius, he made the quick call, and Visser was flipping for his tournament life.

The {Q-Clubs} {2-Spades} {K-Spades} flop was a disaster for the Dutchman as Julius flopped his pair to take a huge lead. He was two cards from the knockout, and the turn {7-Hearts} and river {8-Spades} were both close but no cigar.

Visser's sixes lose the race, and it's the final hand of his day. A bit frustrated, he wished the table luck and headed off to the cashier. He'll pick up $156,400 for his work this week, and hopefully that will be of some consolation.

Julius has squeaked back into the chip lead now with just shy of 8.5 million.
