Chris Horter, Day 3 Level 30

Chris Horter was under the gun and moved in for 1.01M, just under nine big blinds. Jason Rivkin was to his immediate left in the cutoff and made the call. The other three players folded and a situation that has already played out at this Final Table unfolded.

Horter 8♠8♣ vs Rivkin  AA♦ Pot: 2.3M

Board: 9♥2♥3♦Q♦8♦

Earlier, Lavenburg spiked an eight to eliminate Neal Gay in this exact situation. Once again, Aces don’t hold and Horter survives the encounter and is now essentially tied with Pahuja for the short-stack at the table. Rivkin is left with ~4.5M.
