Jack Effel
tournament supervisor ruled that the game continues from the 500/1.500/3.000 blind level, so players were around 75-80 BB deep.

There wasn't much action in the first part of the game, only John Armbrust got rid of his stack quite quickly. He started the 2nd blind level (500/2.000/4.000) with only 40,000. It's not surprising he came to be eliminated first; he was defeated by Taylor Paur's flush.

Patel called, and mucked when saw Toth's {#}7 {#}7 set.

Soon Patel doubled up on Dempsey, but Dempsey managed to double up on Toth in the next hand with pocket nines. However, he was the next to leave the table. Michael Watson raised to 14,000 (3rd blind level, 1.000/3.000/6.000), ElkY called, Dempsey went 3bet all-in. Only ElkY called.

By the time, the game heated up. ElkY wasn't happy for too long, he paid Watson's full house with a drill, which got him back to being shortstacked.
