Just six hands after the elimination of Bruno Politano in eighth place in the 2014 World Series of Poker main event, 30-year-old Daniel Sindelar followed him to the rail in seventh place.

Sindelar, a poker pro from Nebraska who now lives in Las Vegas, got short stacked after a preflop confrontation with William Tonking. On his final hand, Felix Stephensen raised to 1.3 million and Jorryt Van Hoof reraised to 3 million behind him.

Sindelar looked down at JDiamond SuitJClub Suit and moved all in for his last 9.15 million. Stephensen folded, but Van Hoof felt priced in and made the call holding AHeart Suit3Heart Suit.

Sindelar was a favorite to double into third place, but the board ran out ADiamond Suit7Heart Suit2Heart Suit3Diamond SuitQSpade Suit and he was eliminated.

Sindelar played 30 of the 106 hands he was dealt, raising preflop a total of 20 times. He only made it to showdown five times, winning three times and losing twice.

For his seventh place finish, Sindelar picked up $1,235,862, increasing his lifetime live tournament earnings to more than $1.7 million.
