Ren Lin raised from the hijack, John Gilliam reraised from the button to 6,000, and Lin moved all in from the hijack for 28,900.

Gilliam thought for a while before he called with 10d10c, and Lin turned over Ad5s. Lin needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came 8d6c4h5d3s, and Lin paired his five on the turn, but improved no further. Gilliam won the pot with his pocket tens to eliminate Lin.

John Gilliam  –  122,000  (122 bb)
Ren Lin  –  Eliminated
