Ness Reilly 1

In the last hand before the break, Ness Reilly (pictured) limps under the gun for 120,000, Justin Harvell limps from the cutoff, Scott Baumstein limps from the button, Stephen Smith completes the small blind, and A.J. Kelsall checks his option in the big blind.

The flop comes Diamond AClub 9Club 3, and it checks to Baumstein, who bets 225,000. Smith and Kelsall both fold, and Reilly check-raises all in for about 2.5 million. Harvell folds, and Baumstein quickly calls with Club AClub 7 for a pair of aces with an ace-high flush draw.

Reilly turns over Club KClub Q for a dominated king-high flush draw, and she needs to catch something runner-runner to stay alive.

The turn card is the Heart K, and Reilly picks up a pair of kings, giving her two outs heading to the river.

The river card is the Diamond 10, and Baumstein wins the pot with his pair of aces to eliminate Reilly in eighth place.

Scott Baumstein  –  9,175,000  (76 bb)
Ness Reilly  –  Eliminated in 8th Place  ($29,587)
