Yu Kurita - Eliminated in 16th Place

In a hand that would cripple her, Kurita opened for 18,000 from middle position and action folded around to Amanda Baker, who tanked for a while but then announced she was all in for over 200,000. Kurita quickly called.

Kurita: {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}
Baker: {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}

The {J-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{A-Diamonds} board improved Kurita to a set, but gave Baker the winning straight. After the hand, Kurita was down to her last 12,000.

Two hands later, Kurita went all in from under-the-gun and Kimberly Stahl raised to 22,000. Action folded around to Marina Kolbeshkina, who went all in for 103,000 from the small blind. Stahl reluctantly folded.

Kurita: {10-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}
Kolbeshkina: {J-Spades}{J-Hearts}

The board came {8-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds} and Kurita was eliminated.
