Dario Alioto made a great start doubling up against George Danzer, hitting a full house Jacks over three’s bettering Danzar’s full house of Three’s over Aces. This crippled Danzer who then moved All In for his last $7,000 with :as :ad :7s :qc This was called by Thomas Hant with :ac :3h :4c :5h and the Flop came down :ah :2c :8d The :7h came down on the Turn and it was looking likely to be a split pot with Danzer leading with the highest hand trip Aces and Hant Guaranteed to take the low. The :qh changed this to give Hant a flush giving him the whole pot knocking Danzer out of the tournament in 9th place winning $13,597.

Mark Wilds was the next player to go shortly after running into Alioto with a set of Jacks with no low hand possible on the board. Alioto continuing his good run eliminating Wilds out in 8th place collecting $18,755 in prize money.

Thomas Hant then found himself All In with :ac :5d :ks :kd up against Gene Timberlake with :ah :ad :3h :10c The 10 in Timberlake’s hand was good enough to take the whole pot hitting trip tens with the board showing :10s :10d :5s :9s :qd and no low hand possible.

Dario Alioto’s good run came to an end when running into David Bach with pocket Kings when only having pocket Queens himself. The Kings won the pot with no possible low hand knocking Alioto out in 6th place winning $33,759.

Bach claimed his second victim in a row when calling down Chad Brown right down to the River until Brown was All In. Bach Hit his flush on the River with no low hand possible eliminating Brown out in 5th place winning $43,606.

David Bach dominating the table got his hatrick of knockouts when eliminating Gene Timberlake out into 4th place. Timberlake moved All In pre flop with :as :6d :8h :8s and was called by Bach with :kc :ks :7s :qh The board came down :9c :9d :7h :3h :qd giving Bach the win with two pairs Kings and Nines.

Lukasz Dumanski booked his place in the heads up showdown when he knocked out James Tolley into 3rd place. Tolley moved All In with :as :8c :jh :kd and was called by Dumanski with :ah :5h :5s :7d The board came down :8d :6d :3d :5c :4c giving Dumanski a set of Fives to win the high and 7 low beating Tolleys 8 low. Tolley won $91,000 for his 3rd placed finish.
