Josh Weiss (picture) shoves his final 850k from early position and everyone folds until Michael Ruane and Gordon Vayo both call from the small and big blind. No action as the board comes J7354 and all players reveal their cards:
Ruane takes down the pot with two pair and Weiss is eliminated in 10th place for $650,000. All remaining players (from USA, Belgium, Czech Republic, Spain and Canada) are awarded a seat at the 2016 WSOP Main Event final table, which will take place in October.
