Mikhail Smirnov Eliminated in 9th Place (HKD$473,000/$60,253)
Nível 13 : 0-0, 20,000 ante
Over on the outer table, Jason Koon raised to 160,000 first to act and Gabe Patgorski called in the cutoff. Mikhail Smirnov moved all in for his last 650,000 on the button and Koon sighed "Gabe ruined my plan" before sending his cards into the muck, Patgorski called instantly.
Patgorski shrugged "short deck" while Koon said "I had you both crushed." The board came and Smirnov was eliminated in 9th place for HKD$473,000 (approximately $60,253).
All remaining eight players will now redraw to the unofficial eight-handed final table with a short break to come.
