Matthias Eibinger and Chino Rheem

Matthias Eibinger and Chino Rheem had tangled several times throughout the last two days and the Austrian went from one of the chip leaders to shorter stack after two clashes with Rheem on Day 2. It was no coincidence as such that they would meet again and it sealed the fate of Eibinger.

The action started with a cutoff raise to 80,000 by Eibinger and Rheem called on the button. On a flop of {10-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}, Eibinger checked and Rheem bet 125,000. Eibinger cut out his remaining stack carefully, which happened to be 1,045,000, and pushed all in. Rheem almost beat him into the pot and the camera crews rushed by to film the showdown.

Matthias Eibinger: {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}
Chino Rheem: {7-Clubs}{6-Clubs}

Rheem had a ton of outs with his pair and flush draw, but the final blow came in runner-runner fashion as he hit the {8-Diamonds} turn and {9-Diamonds} river for a ten-high straight. Eibinger has been eliminated in 14th place and takes home $77,620.
