Hyon Kim Eliminated by Justin Young
Level 11: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante
Justin Young bets out on a 98310 board and Hyon Kim puts in a big raise, effectively committing himself. Young announces he is all-in and Kim quickly calls for his tournament life.

"Do you have a flush?," Young asks.
"No, I have a set," Kim replies.
"I have a straight," says Young as he flips over J7.
"At least I have outs," Kim responded as he turns over 88.
Young walks away from the table and turns his back before the river is dealt. Kim watches as the dealer brings the A on the river, making a flush for Young and eliminating Kim.
"You're good," tablemate Matt Stout calls over to Young, who comes back over to the table and starts stacking chips.
Young then gives credit to none other than Emeline Boich for the big pot. Boich is seated at the table as well and apparently gave Young some advice before the hand started:
"She told me I needed to get in a pot to win," Young explains to the table.
Justin Young - 440,000
Hyun Kim - eliminated

Tough Table Draw
Level 7: 500-1,000, 100 ante
Jonathan Little made an interesting observation on Twitter about his table a short while ago:
Jonathan Little, Carlos Mortensen, Daniel Alaei, Matt Stout, Ryan Hughes, Poorya Nazari, Steve Billirakis, Tournaments, Bellagio, WPT World Championship, Season 8 on FSN, Season VIII
@JonathanLittle: I think all but 2 guys at my table have over 2 mil in cashes. Maybe those other guys do too. Hopefully I'll run hot.
Here's a look at Little's table with their career live earnings to date according to the Hendon Mob database:
Seat 1: Carlos Mortensen - $9,503,809
Seat 2: Steve Billirakis - $1,587,553
Seat 3: Matt Stout - $1,022,920
Seat 4: unknown player
Seat 5: Jonathan Little - $4,256,646
Seat 6: unknown player
Seat 7: Poorya Nazari - $3,122,849
Seat 8: Ryan Hughes - $1,359,530
Seat 9: Daniel Alaei - $4,014,315
Keep in mind these are only accounting for live results. Were we to consider online tournament earnings as well, both Stout and Billirakis would be in the $2 million club as well.
Collectively, the table also has six WPT titles, six WSOP bracelets, an EPT title, and several WSOP-C victories just to name a few of their tournament accolades.
