Alex Foxen has been eliminated in ninth place. Foxen was the Day 1 chipleader and held a large stack for most of the tournament. When the players returned from dinner break, Foxen doubled up Matt Waxman two times and lost a third pot to him, bringing his stack down to average.

Eventually, Jared Bleznick opened to 15,000 and Foxen shoved all in for 105,000. Bleznick called.

Foxen was drawing to a nine and hit it, making a {9-}{6-}{5-}{4-}{3-}. Bleznick had {6-}{5-}{3-}{2-} and was drawing very thin, but hit an eight to make an {8-}{6-}{5-}{3-}{2-} and eliminate Foxen.

"Really well played," Bleznick said, "I'm serious, you got a phenomenal future."

Bleznick has been talking a lot, so it is sometimes difficult to gauge his level of sincerity, but he congratulated Foxen on a well-played tournament and got up to shake his hand and give him a one-armed hug.

Foxen earned his tenth World Series of Poker cash with his ninth place finish. He took home $5,530 for his effort. Bleznick will now carry the chip lead into the unofficial final table.
