Yoneya Unable to Hold On

• Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Taichi Yoneya

Taichi Yoneya was all-in for just one big blind, but there was no major hand we missed earlier, he has been surviving on fumes for what seems to have been forever here on Day 4. The Japanese player took his exit in great spirit, but it was a tough beat.

All-in and at risk with {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds} , Yoneya faced Alexandru Baron's {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} but after the flop came {8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{9-Spades} Yoneya himself declared 'He has outs!'

The turn of {7-Hearts} didn't do him any damage, but the {10-Clubs} river gave Baron a better straight than the one on the board and Yoneya was out of the door, smiling, but beaten.
