Chris Ebbe - 14th

Kurt Jewell opened and Guillauma Marechal three bet to 95,000. Chris Ebbe then four-bet to 175,000 and Jewell folded. Marechal moved in and Ebbe sighed and called it off.

Ebbe {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs} had run in to the {k-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} of Marechal.

The flop {q-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} saw Ebbe say, “Hold.” as he hit his set. The turn {3-Spades} was fine but the river {k-Spades} saw a clap of hands and an exuberant, “Yes.” from Marechal.

The other players called it an online hand and Ebbe was out.

Swett turned over the {10-Spades}{8-Diamonds}, while Ebbe showed {a-Spades}{j-Hearts}.

It was Swett who was at risk and he stood up as the {6-Spades}{a-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop shot Ebbe way out front with no sign of a sweat. The {q-Diamonds} turn and {q-Hearts} river sealed the deal, and Swett hit the rail.

Andrews added another pile of chips to her stack and sent Pecheux to the payout desk.

Jamie Armstrong - 18th Place

Jamie Armstrong's bustout came following back-to-back hands with Zach Gruneberg. In the first hand, Armstrong moved all in with {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades} and Gruneberg called with {7-Spades}{5-Spades}. The board ran out {k-Hearts}{3-Spades}{j-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{a-Hearts} and Armstrong doubled up.

The very next hand, Armstrong again moved all in preflop and Gruneberg made the call.

Gruneberg: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}
Armstrong: {a-Spades}{q-Spades}

Both players hit a piece of the {q-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{k-Hearts} flop, but Gruneberg's was best and after the turn and river — {4-Diamonds}, then {5-Hearts} — Armstrong hit the rail.
