Larry Hoffman

In the last hand before the break, Larry Hoffman raised from the small blind to 13,000, Anthony Zinno moved all in from the big blind for about 75,000, and Hoffman tanked for a while before he called with 8s8h.

Zinno turned over QdQc, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came Jc5h4dKs8c, and Hoffman rivered a set of eights to win the pot and eliminate Zinno from the tournament.

Larry Hoffman  –  793,000  (132 bb)
