Martins Adeniya started the day as our chip leader and given the talent of the man it is a surprise to see him eliminated so early.
Adeniya is down to his last 10 big blinds when Andrey Pateychuk opens to 40,000 from early position. He looks at his cards and sees 88 before mving all-in and Pateychuk called.
The Q96 flop misses Pateychuk but he does pick up an open-ended straight draw. The 5 on the turn keeps Adeniya in front but the T lands on the river, despite a plea for a deuce from Adeniya's friend James Akenhead on the rail.
Pateychuk ~ 1,100,000
