Boris Akopov Eliminated in 9th Place ($4,310)


Boris Akopov and Jared Kawalsky were heads up on the flop of [Qc][Jd][8h] when Akopov moved all in. Kawalsky got a count, then made the call with [As][10h]. He was very live aainst the [9h][8s] of Akopov, and the [9s] on the turn gave Kawalsky a straight. Akopov could still double up with a nine or eight, but the river was a king. 

The final eight are currently on a 15-minute break.
