Hand #21: Ashton Griffin Eliminated in 9th Place
Level 13: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Hand #21 - Ashton Griffin raises to 35,000 from middle position and Justin Bonomo calls in the big blind. The flop comes down K83 and Bonomo checks. Griffin bets 60,000 and Bonomo check-raises, making it 175,000 to go.
Griffin thinks for a bit before caling and the turn brings the 4. Bonomo eyes Griffin's stack and slides out a stack of red 25,000 chips to put Griffin all-in for his remaining 356,000.
Griffin tanks for several minutes, sitting in silence. He eventually cals and shows JJ for a pair of jacks. Bonomo has the best of it with K8 for two pair, kings and eights.
The river is the 5 and Bonomo's hand holds to eliminate Griffin in ninth place.
With the hand, Bonomo jumps up to 2,870,000 and retakes the chips lead.
Justin Bonomo - 2,870,000 (179 BBs)
Ashton Griffin - eliminated in 9th place
