Anton Makiievsky Exits In 8th ($1,010,015) At WSOP Final Table

Anton Makievskyi, 21 from the Ukraine has just been eliminated from the 2011 WSOP Final Table in 8th place for which he will receive $1,010,015.
Makiievsky entered the Final Table in 8th spot just in front of Samuel Holden. who had just been eliminated by Ben Lamb a few hands earlier.
Now it was Anton Makiievsky time to bow out from this year’s competition, after being dealt Kc-Qh in the small blind. With the blinds at 400k/800k and a 100k ante, the rest of the table folded to Makiievsky’s small blind, who open-shoved his 10.5 million stack into Heinz’ big blind, who made the call with his pocket nines.
With a K-J-J falling on the flop, Makiievsky looked good for the double-up but a 9 on the turn followed by a 7 on the river dashed the Ukrainian’s hopes who then received a standing ovation for his part in the November Nine.
At 21 year old Anton Makiievsky’ was the youngest player at the final table  and also became its first millionaire. He now adds the huge score to his approx. $70,000 won from 7 previous tournament cashes.
In the meantime, Pius Heinz, 22 from Germany who started the day in 7th now stands at the top of the chip counts on a 53,500 stack.
