The remaining players have been sent on a ten minute break in the 2011 APPT Macau Main Event.
Andrew Hinrichsen has just seen his elimination from the 2011 APPT Macau Main Event . We weren't there to catch the action, but some players at the table were happy to let us know how it played out.
Apparently, Hinrichsen opened from under the gun holding and recieved the call from one late position opponent and one opponent in the small blind.
The flop landed and this is when all the action played out. According to the table, Hinrichsen over-shoved for 25,000 after the small blind player was all in for 9,000. The late position player made the call and the three players turned their hands over.
The on the turn changed nothing, while the would help the small blind survive as he took down the main pot. When Hinrichsen got no help, the side pot would be sent to his late position opponent and he would make his way out of the tournament.
