Ferro: AsKs
Kitchen: AhQs

Kitchen ran into a big ace and it got worse when Ferro made aces up on the AcKd4d flop. The Js turn had Kitchen asking for a ten but the 6c river sent him out in sixth place.

Ferro: AsKc
Milburn: Ad8h

Milburn was in trouble with his smaller ace, found no love on the Td2c3s flop. The Th turn paired the board and it looked like a chopped pot until Ferro hit the Kh river to send Milburn out in seventh place.

Ferro: AcKh
Hogan: 4h4d

Hogan was the player at risk, needed his fours to hold, but there was an ace in the window of the AdTh8h flop. The Kd turn and Ts river finished the board and Hogan was eliminated in eighth place.
