Mark Nahama open-shoved from middle position for 225,000 and Michael Merisier called from the cutoff. The rest of the table released and they were heads-up.
Nahama needed to catch but it was Merisier improving on the flop. Nahama picked up a gutshot draw on the turn. The river was a blank and Nahama was eliminated in eighth place.
Michael Merisier – 1,800,000 (45 bb)
Mark Nahama – Eliminated in 8th place ($2,153)
