Assaf was flipping to stay in the Championship but needed to improve to double up. But it was Kupin getting better with a flopped set of sixes on the Kd6s2h board and Assaf was eliminated in 10th place after the 5h turn and 2d river.

Tournament staff paused the clock to redraw seats at the final table, next stop is the televised final table lineup when six remain.

Aaron Kupin  –  8,000,000  (40 bb)
Wasim Assaf  –  Eliminated in 10th Place  ($83,000)
