Tai Nguyen and Matt Waxman Eliminated ($79,668)

Tai Nguyen, pictured below, moves all-in from early position for 530,000 and Justin Bonomo, who is next to act, calls. Matt Waxman, who is to Bonomo's immediate left, then re-shoves for just over 1,100,000.

The rest of the table folds to the blinds, where Erasmus Morfe, pictured above, moves all-in as well, having both all-in players covered, as well as Bonomo, who has just under 1,400,000 in front of him.

He eventually folds and the hands are exposed, with Waxman rolling his eyes as he tables    only to see Morfe turn over   . Nguyen holds    and both shorter stacks are left with two outs to save their tournament lives.

There come from behind attempt gets even harder after the     flop falls, but Waxman picks up some hope as the   gives him an up and down straight draw on the turn.

Nguyen was drawing dead on the turn and the river provides Waxman with the same fate, as the   confirms the double elimination for Morfe, who shoots away from the table to give himself a subdued fist pump before returning to his now top ten stack.

Waxman and Nguyen will take $79,668 for their runs here in the 2015 WSOP Main Event.
