There will be no repeat for defending champion Jan-Peter Jachtmann as he has been eliminated. We didn't catch the hand but Jason Mercier, who was seated at the same table, was kind enough to fill us in on some details.
According to him, Tom Marchese crippled Jachtmann and then finished the job. In the final hand, Jachtmann got his stack all in preflop holding the and was up against Marchese's . The flop gave Jachtmann the lead with a pair of eights and a flush draw, but Marchese took it back when the turn paired his king. The river gave Marchese two pair and would be the last card Jachtmann would see in the very event he won one year ago.
