Hand #68: Seth Berger opened with a raise to 110,000. In the next seat Thomas Muehloecker called all in for his tournament life since he had less chips than Berger's raise. Action folded over to Matt Perrins who reraised to 250,000 from the button. Antonio Buonanno then moved all in from the big blind leading to a fold from Seth Berger. With action back on Perrins he tanked for about half a minute before making the call
The flop looked good for both Buonanno and Perrins when it came , giving top pair to Buonanno and an open ended straight draw to Perrins. Perrin's rail exploded with cheers of "Eight! Eight! Eight! Eight!' but it was the that came on the turn. The river could still come a king, deuce, or eight to change the outcome of the hand, but it was a allowing Buonanno to double up while eliminating Muehloecker from the tournament in the process.
