Oren Maimon got his last 45,000 chips into the middle preflop against Brad Ruben.

Maimon: 2h3s9hTd
Ruben: As2s9dQh

The QsJs8c flop was a good sweat for both players, giving Maimon a queen-high straight but needing to fade Ruben’s flush draw. He could not. The 6c turn was safe, but the 6s river gave Ruben the nut flush and the knockout.

Maimon was eliminated in sixth place on the last hand of the level.

Brad Ruben – 195,000
Oren Maimon – Eliminated in 6th place ($1,368)

Event 7: Kevin Love Eliminated in 9th Place ($684), David Shmuel Eliminated in 8th Place ($912)

$360 Pot Limit Omaha/8 (Re-Entry)
Level 16: 2,000/4,000
Players Remaining: 10 of 76

In significant preflop action, Kevin Love ended up all in for about 55,000, David Shmuel got all in for about 80,000, and Daniel Li called both shoves to put both opponents at risk.

Love: 3c4d5h6c
Shmuel: KdKh8d8s
Li: Ad2d4s8c

The Ah7h3h flop was about as good as it could get for Li, giving him the lead with a pair of aces and the nut low draw. The Jd turn and Ts river completed the board with blanks, so Li’s aces were enough to scoop the pot and eliminate both players.

Love began the hand with the shorter stack, so he took ninth-place money, worth $684.
