Pierre Neuville Eliminated in 2nd Place ($385,041); Kevin Eyster Wins!

• Level 31: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante
Pierre Neuville - 2nd place

Hand #173: Kevin Eyster shoved on the button for 995,000 effective and Pierre Neuville called all in from the big blind.

Eyster: {K-Clubs}{9-Clubs}
Neuville: {K-Spades}{Q-Hearts}

Neuville was in a commanding lead to double up, but the flop came down {K-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{3-Clubs} to give Eyster kings and nines to take the lead. The {9-Diamonds} landed on the turn to give Eyster a full house, leaving Neuville drawing to just the final king in the deck for a chop. The {A-Spades} river officially sealed the deal for Eyster, eliminating Neuville in second place.
