Josh Hillock opens to 28,000 under the gun, and Jason Brewer three-bet shoves from the big blind, having Hillock well covered. When it comes back to Hillock, he sinks deep into the tank.

“You just have pocket eights?” he asks rhetorically. “Just stick it in there with pocket eights?” Brewer doesn’t respond, and Hillock spends another few minutes in the tank before calling all in for close to 200,000 total.

“Ace-jack suited?” Darryll Fish guesses. Everyone is correct.

Hillock: AcJc
Brewer: 8c8h

The board runs out 8d6s2s3sAs, and Brewer wins the pot with a set of eights. Hillock is out in ninth place.

Jason Brewer – 820,000 (68 bb)
Josh Hillock – Eliminated in 9th Place ($2,681)
