Tuu Ho Eliminated in 8th Place ($29,147)
Nível 24 : 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante
Hand #41: In the very first hand back from the break, chip leader Matt Waxman opened for 48,000 from middle position only to have Tuu Ho, who doubled just before the break, three-bet to 100,000 from the small blind. Waxman responded by four-betting to 200,000 and then insta-called when Ho moved all in.
Ho was in bad shape and in need of some help if he hope to keep his tournament hopes alive. The flop wasn't much, though it gave him a gutshot straight draw, meaning he could still win with either a jack or ace. The turn wasn't what he needed, and neither was the turn. Ho exited in eighth place to a nice round of applause and made his way to the payout desk to collect $29,147.
