Marius Gierse

Jim Gilbert opened to 250,000 from under the gun and Pavel Plesuv called from the button. Marius Gierse moved all in for 4,950,000 from the big blind to get a fold from Gilbert and called from Plesuv.

Gierse: AcQc
Plesuv: 9h9d

It was a race that Gierse needed to win to stay in the Championship but the board ran all low 7c6s3d3s6d to send him out in fourth place.

The hand pushed Plesuv further into the lead with a two-to-one advantage over the other two combined.
