Kurt Haiss opens the pot for 90,000 from under-the-gun, leaving himself 60,000 chips behind, a fact he announces to the table. The action folds to Kays, who moves all-in for 101,000. John Moore in the big blind contemplates a call but decides to let his hand go after a few moments of thought. Haiss calls the extra 11,000 and the hands are turned up.
Haiss - A♥K♦
Kays - A♦T♣
"You got me," Kays says as he turns over his hand. The flop comes scary for Haiss, 9♠8♠7♥, giving Kays an open-ended straight draw to go with his pair outs. The 5♦ on the turn is no help, and the K♥ on the river seals the hand for Haiss.
Kays exits the Main Event in 18th place and will collect $1,872 for his performance in the tournament.
Kurt Haiss - 280,000
Josh Kays - Eliminated
