Action folded to Jason Ritchie in the hijack and he moved all-in for his last 410k, just over 10 big blinds. Jason Rivkin found a hand in the big blind and made the call putting him at risk.

Ritchie A♥K♥ vs Rivkin 9♥9♣ Pot: 945k

Board: 2♣8♠4♥5♠7♠

Ritchie started the day in 12th/18 and 710k but had no spots to get involved in the first hour of play. In the end, it was a standard flip for his tournament life and he could not find any of his outs despite the small improvement on the turn. Jason Rivkin collects the short stack and now has ~1.95M.

Jason Ritchie is eliminated in 17th place for $6,049.
