$10k 8-Max: Joris Ruijs Knocks out Brian Kim (4th Place) & Michael Brinkenhoff (3rd Place)

Dec 23, 2023

The complete action is missed on the hand, but Brian Kim moves all in with X KX 10 for 1,700,000 against Joris Ruijs who holds X 9X 9. The runout fails to provide help to Kim and he is eliminated in 4th place. 

Soon after, Michael Brinkenhoff moves all in preflop for 2,475,000 and Ruijs shoves for more to get Pavel Plesuv out of the way. 

Brinkenhoff tables Heart QDiamond J while Ruijs flips over Club ADiamond 10

The flop of Heart 10Club 10Club 3 gives Ruijs a huge lead with trip tens but the turnDiamond K gives Brinkenhoff four outs to a nine. Alas, the river is the brick Heart 8 and he is sent to the rail in 3rd place. 

Joris Ruijs – 7,800,000 (62 bb)
Brian Kim – Eliminated in 4th Place ($115,045)
Michael Brinkenhoff – Eliminated in 3rd Place ($154,945)
