Will Givens came into the Event 18 final table as the chip leader but went downhill following an early uptick. Givens lost most of his chips to Marcelo Drumm and Patrick Beirne took him out in seventh place.
Beirne opened for 80,000 in the cutoff and Givens pushed for 400,000 from the small blind. Beirne called the shove with A♠7♥ and needed to hit against the A♣10♣ of Givens.
Sure enough, a seven hit the flop and Givens was drawing slim to stay alive. The turn and river were bricks and Beirne scooped with his pair to send Givens to the rail.
