Paul Foltyn Eliminated in 8th Place ($79,957)

Paul Foltyn - 8th Place

Jason DeWitt made it 90,000 to go preflop, and Peter Gilmore flat-called in the next seat over. Not to be outdone, Paul Foltyn moved all in for 650,000 from the hijack seat, only to see DeWitt reshove all in over the top. That sent a clear message to Gilmore, and he ducked out of the way to let DeWitt try for the knockout heads up with Foltyn. Cards up, please:

DeWitt: {A-Spades} {A-Diamonds}
Foltyn: {5-Clubs} {5-Hearts}

The board of {K-Spades} {4-Diamonds} {7-Hearts} {4-Clubs} {6-Spades} did nothing to improve Foltyn's plight, and he has run out of chips. He's out in 8th place, earning just about $80,000 for his efforts over the last three days. Not too shabby, sir.

DeWitt is back up to 1.9 million in chips.
