Wataru Nippa

Wataru Nippa opened to 15,000 under the gun, and Chris Tham three-bet shoved for about 140,000 effective in the big blind. Nippa called all in for that amount, putting himself at risk.

Nippa: AhKs
Tham: 8s8c

The 8d2c2h flop left Nippa drawing almost dead, and the Td turn ended his day one card early. The river was the meaningless 6c, and Tham won the pot with eights full.

Nippa was eliminated in eighth place, earning $2,387.

Chris Tham – 585,000 (98 bb)
Wataru Nippa – Eliminated
