Martini Denis shoved from the cutoff for almost 9,000,000 and Marius Gicovanu made the call from the big blind with the bigger stack.
The flop came for Gicovanu to stay ahead but for Denis to pick up the gutshot to a straight.
The turn was the to keep Gicovanu in the same spot and so did the on the river as Denis was eliminated in eleventh place.
The ten remaining players will now be redrawn onto the unofficial final table. That seat draw is to follow.
