Ronald Ong Eliminated in 8th Place by Kenneth Detina

Ronald Ong

Action folds to Ronald Ong in the small blind and he moves all in for about 120,000. Kenneth Detina calls out of the big blind. Detina shows    and is in the lead against Ong's   .

The board runs out      . Detina flops the nut flush draw, turns an ace and fades the straight draw to win the pot and eliminate Ong. Ong hits the rail in eighth and the final seven players are on the money bubble, with one more elimination until the top six players are all in the money.

"Don't mess with the guy in a button-up [shirt] and a beer," jokes Detina after the hand.

Detina drags the pot and continues to put distance between himself and the rest of the field.

Kenneth Detina - 620,000
Ronald Ong - Eliminated
