Joe Kuether - 10th Place

After a few small raise-and-take pots to begin play, a confrontation between Dan Kelly and Joe Kuether resulted in the latter's elimination.

The action began when Kuether open shoved all-in from middle position for 1.325 million with {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}. Kelly made the call from the next seat over and rolled over Kuether's worst nightmare, the {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}.

Needing a miracle to catch up and down Kelly's rockets, Kuether watched a flop of {7-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} arrive, and with it, a glimmer of hope. Kuether needed a lucky lady to make an appearance on the turn or river, which woulf be good for a Braodway straight and an unlikely double, but the {J-Diamonds} on the turn was the wrong kind of paint. A {9-Spades} on the river ended the proceedings, and Kuether was left to watch the final table with the rest of us.
