WSOP Final Table: Michael Ruane Eliminated in 4th Place ($2,576,003)

Lee Davy brings you updates from the World Series of Poker Main Event as nine players battle it out for the title of poker’s Champion of the World and $8m in prize money.

We are down to three players on Day 9 of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event after Michael Ruane left the party in fourth place.

After Vojtech Ruzicka exited in fifth the smart money was on the short stacked Ruane to quickly follow him. He was repeatedly bashed about in the big blind by Cliff Josephy moving all-in every orbit in the small blind, and Ruane himself moved all-in several times to take the blinds and ante’s when this happened.

Qui Nguyen opened to 2,700,000 from first position and Michael Ruane moved all-in from the small blind. The big blind folded and Nguyen asked for a count. The dealer counted 15,700,000 and Nguyen made the call.
