New Zealand's [Removed:17] open-shoved for 780,000 under the gun and received a call from Mervin Chan in the cutoff. The button and both blinds folded and the cards were turned up.
It was a bad spot for the SuperNova Elite as he had run pocket eights into a bigger pocket pair. According to the PokerNews Odds Calculator, Chan was an 81.31% favorite and Yan only had a 18.23% chance of survival. That dropped to 13.23% on the flop, which gave him a running straight draw, but the useless turn bumped him down to just 4.55%.
Yan needed an eight on the river to survive, but it wasn't in the cards as the peeled off. With that, Yan was eliminated in sixth place for AU$220,000.
