Adam Hendrix min-raised under the gun to 40,000, Brandon Hamlet reraised UTG+1 to 100,000, and Richard Menjura four-bet all in from the button for 490,000.

Hendrix asked for an exact count and tanked for a while before he folded.

Hamlet quickly called with AdKc, and Menjura turned over [A]Qh. Menjura needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came 8h6d4d5c9h, and the board brought a gutshot straight draw on the turn to give Menjura outs to a chop, but the river card missed. Hamlet won the pot with his king kicker to eliminate Menjura in eighth place.

Brandon Hamlet  –  2,385,000  (119 bb)
Richard Menjura  –  Eliminated in 8th Place  ($14,390)
