The end of Marcus Aurelius imperial reign over this event occurred when he flopped an ace holding {A-Hearts}{3-Hearts}. Unfortunately for Aurelius, the flop of {a-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{8-Spades} hit Barry Hutter even harder, as he held the {5-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}, and when Aurelius moved all in on the turn for more than 400,000, Hutter snap-called with his trip eights.

Turn: {2-Spades}
River: {j-Diamonds}

Fourth and fifth street failed to deliver Aurelius the ace he needed to survive, and he was eliminated in 19th place, earning $12,999 for his efforts.
