Arsht Downed by Quad Ducks

Omaha-8:

Aaron Steury made it 30,000 to go before the flop and picked up three callers, including a short stacked David Arsht. The dealer flopped {2-Spades}{K-Hearts}{J-Spades} and after it was checked to him, Steury fired 15,000 into the middle. This forced the other two players to fold but David Arsht made the call, leaving himself with only 8,000 chips behind.

That 8,000 went into the pot after the turn came {2-Diamonds} and Arsht was all in for his tournament life holding the {A-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} for an open ended straight draw. Unfortunately for him, Steury held the {A-Spades}{6-Spades}{2-Hearts}{7-Hearts} for trip deuces and a flush draw, meaning Arsht was drawing extremely thin. He would need to spike one of the two remaining aces or three remaining non-spade nines to survive.

River: {2-Clubs}

With that, Steury made quad deuces and Arsht was eliminated in 11th place. Steury built his stack to just under 400,000 after the hand.
