Sam Chartier has been eliminated after losing two successive pots. The first heads-up encounter was with the short-stacked Konstantin Uspenskiy. We are not sure when the all-in encounter occurred but we do have the two hands and the board.

Chartier will not be adding a WSOP bracelet to his WSOP circuit ring.
