Alex Kidwell moved all-in for 30,000 from middle position and action folded around to Andy Pokrivnak in the small blind. He decided to call.

Kidwell tabled the best of it with [Ah][Qh], up against Pokrivnak's [As][8s]. Play was hand-for-hand, so as soon as the Tournament Director gave the go-ahead, the dealer put out a flop reading [9d][8d][4s] to put Pokrivnak in the lead with a pair of eights.

The turn was the [Kd] and the river was the [Td], sending Kidwell to the rail on the stone bubble.

All remaining 32 players are now in the money, guaranteed a payout of $405.

Andy Pokrivnak - 220,000
Alex Kidwell - Eliminated
