Paul Balzano moved all-in for approximately 200,000 and Marsha Wolak quickly shoved next to act. The rest of the table moved out of the way and Wolak was ahead with Ah4h against 9s8d.

Balzano had a shot but Wolak quickly shut the door on the Qh8h2h flop. Only running miracle cards could help Balzano but the 3s turn had him drawing dead to the Kd river.

Tournament staff counted down the stacks and Wolak had Balzano covered 235,000 to 213,000. Balzano hit the payout desk in 11th place and they are redrawing the last ten players for the final table.

Marsha Wolak – 458,000 (23 bb)
Paul Balzano – Eliminated in 11th place ($12,000)
