Rainer Kempe moved all in UTG+1 for 3,000, and the player in the small blind moved all in over the top for 14,000 with Kh6c.

Kempe turned over Qh2h, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Qs10s2d8h7s, and Kempe paired his queen on the flop to win the pot and double up in chips.

Rainer Kempe  –  9,000  (6 bb)

The next hand, Kempe moved all in under the gun for 9,000, Alex Yen reraised from the cutoff to 23,000, and everyone else folded.

Kempe turned over QdJd, and he needed to improve to stay alive against Yen’s AsKh.

There was a jack on the flop to give Kempe a pair, but a king on the turn gave Yen a higher pair to win the pot and eliminate Kempe from the tournament.

Alex Yen  –  110,000  (73 bb)
Rainer Kempe  –  Eliminated
