Brian Tate opened the action by open-shipping all in from under the gun for 90,500. Action folded to Christopher George who called out of the small blind. The big blind folded and the hands were revealed to be racing for Tate's tournament life.
The board came down and George's queens full of eights sent Tate packing. Tate took home $14,877 in prize money for his 9th place finish.
The field is now one elimination away from combining to the unofficial final table of seven.
