Mike McClain raises to 25,000 and Joe Elpayaa, who was moved from the other table following Brandon Wong's elimination, reraises to 66,000 out of the big blind.
McClain takes a minute, then moves all-in for around 350,000 total. Elpayaa quickly calls with AA and McClain trails with AQ.
The K98 keeps Elpayaa out front and the 9 on the turn leaves McClain drawing dead. The river brings the J and McClain is eliminated.
Joe Elpayaa - 1,400,000 (117 BBs)
Mike McClain - eliminated in ninth place ($41,600)
