Chris Vitch Eliminated in 8th Place ($17,558)
Level 27 : 40,000-80,000, 0 ante
Chris Vitch was all-in two consecutive hands, but each of them ended in a split. Vitch made it three in a row when he three-bet over Chris Klodnicki's raise. John Evans joined the contest and three players came to the flop for 120,000.
It fell and Vitch led out. Evans folded but Klodnicki raised. Vitch three-bet and Klodnicki four-bet for 7,000 more to put Vitch at risk. While Vitch loved the all-diamond flop, he soon found the bad news.
Vitch had flopped the second nuts but Klodnicki showed the nut flush and the and runout sent Vitch home in eighth place.
The remaining seven players moved to the stage to continue on a seven-handed final table.
