Hand #8: From the hijack, Andres Korn raised to 110,000. Action folded to Mark Zullo in the big blind who didn't hesitate for too long before moving in for 910,000. Korn asked for a count and called shortly after.

Zullo: {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}
Korn: {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}

The flop brought the {Q-Hearts} but that card was accompanied by the {8-Spades} and {4-Diamonds}, giving Korn a set. Zullo needed runner-runner but failed to catch up as the {5-Clubs} hit the turn and {6-Hearts} hit the river.

Sergio Cabrera Eliminated in 9th Place ($41,031)

Hand #1: In the first hand of the day, Marton Czuczor raised under the gun to 120,000. Chip leader Andres Korn called from middle position before the action got to Sergio Cabrera on the button.

The Spaniard shoved for 885,000 and both blinds folded quickly. Czuczor didn't need much time either and tossed his cards into the muck just as quick. Korn asked for a count and called.

Cabrera: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}
Korn: {6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}

The flop came {9-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{9-Hearts}, doing not much for Cabrera. He picked up some outs with the {8-Spades} on the turn, but the {9-Spades} on the river wasn't one of the cards he was looking for.

In the first hand of the day, Sergio Cabrera hit the rail. He takes home $41,031 and the remaining eight players are guaranteed $53,615 from here on out.
