Dan Smith Eliminated in 10th Place ($25,367)

Dan Smith - 10th place
Dan Smith - 10th place

Dan Smith started out a recent hand by making it 53,000 preflop from the button. After the small blind folded action was on Noah Vaillancourt who three-bet to 128,000. Smith then countered by moving all in, and Vaillancourt made the call after a few seconds.

Smith: {A-Hearts}{6-Hearts}
Vaillancourt: {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}

A {6-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{5-Clubs} flop gave Smith a pair of sixes, but they were still second best to Vaillancourt's eights. A {4-Clubs} on the turn actually gave Vaillancourt a straight flush. There was no card that could come that would save Smith, but a {7-Diamonds} fell on the river none the less.

We are now at our official nine-handed final table, we will have official chip counts shortly.
