Jesse Yaginuma Eliminated in 8th Place ($16,610)


Jesse Yaginuma and Sam Wiess were heads up on a board reading [10d][9s][8h][5s] when Yaginuma’s last chips went in the middle. He held pocket kings and was in the lead, but he had tons of outs to dodge, as Wiess held [Js][7s] for striaght and flush draws. The [2s] on the river gave Wiess that flush, and he sent the experienced Yaginuma to the rail.
