Max Silver - 12th place

Sam Stein raised to 19,000 on the button, Max Silver called from the big blind, and the flop fell {4-Spades}{3-Spades}{4-Diamonds}.

Silver checked, Stein bet 19,000, Silver check-raised to 48,000, and Stein reraised to 116,000. Silver called to see the {8-Hearts} turn and checked. Stein bet 131,000 and after a few moments, Silver raised all in.

Stein called all in for 314,000 with {J-Spades}{4-Clubs} for trips, leading Silver's {7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}. The {Q-Hearts} river was no help to Silver, giving Stein a commanding lead.

The following hand, Silver shoved for his last 40,000-ish with {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and Stein called with {A-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}. The board ran out {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{2-Spades}, eliminating Silver in 12th place.

Stein advances to face Scott Baumstein in the Round of 8.
