Jesse Sylvia hugs Robert Salaburu after eliminating him in 8th place.

Hand #65:

The button was on Greg Merson to start this hand. Action folded to Jesse Sylvia in the small blind, and he raised all in against Robert Salaburu's big blind. Salaburu quickly called to put himself at risk with the {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}. Sylvia held the {Q-Clubs}{5-Clubs}.

Salaburu stood with one knee on his chair, looking relatively uncomfortable in anticipation. Sylvia made his way over to quickly chat with his rail before returning to his seat.

The flop came down {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{4-Clubs}, and Salaburu stayed in front. The turn was the {2-Diamonds}, then the river completed the board with the {Q-Hearts}, and the Penn & Teller Theatre exploded with Sylvia's rail going absolutely bonkers. Salaburu shook the hands of his competitors before bowing out the door in eighth place.
