Jesse McVicker was the short stack coming into the final table and was the first to exit.
As the shortest stack at the final table by a relatively wide margin, Jesse McVicker couldn't afford to sit back and wait for other players to bust. Instead, McVicker was forced into action but ran into a buzzsaw held by Chad Freeman to bust.
McVicker moved all-in for about 155,000 from the button and Freeman out of the small blind. Jonathan Nguyen folded the big blind and McVicker was officially at risk. McVicker showed A♦5♠ but Freeman had his ace in bad shape with his A♣K♣. The Q♣9♣7♣ flop put a bow on the hand for Freeman and McVicker hit the rail.
Freeman is peaking at the right time with 845,000 and Mike Rieck is the new low man with 270,000 as the blinds get ready to move up.
