“He died a slow death to be honest,” Rainer Kempe’s former neighbor said. The German high roller’s last hand had him jam the low jack for his last eight big blinds with ace-ten. Unfortunately for Kempe, the big blind woke up with ace-king and saw that hand hold up.
Besides Kempe, also Will Kassouf and Philipp Gruissem have left the tournament – though details are absent at this time. All three have the option to buy back in again if they have a spare $10,300 laying around somewhere.
