Action folded around to Mike Lavenburg on the button who shoved for ~12 million, only to have chip leader Fernando Dacruz (sb) shove over the top.
Mike’s pocket 8s were up against AK and the board ran clean until the river: Q 7 6 Q A. The ubiquitous Ace on the river gave Fernando the bigger pair and the pot. He’s now stacking about 100 million.
Mike finished in 9th place, earning $16,244.
