We caught up with the action as the cards were being turned over for a preflop all in with Barry Greenstein's tournament life on the line.

Greenstein: {A-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}
Williams: {A-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

The flop brought good news for Greenstein, falling {2-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}. However, as quickly as joy was brought to Greenstein, it was taken away just as quick when Williams paired up with the {10-Spades} falling on the turn. The river's {A-Hearts} brought them both two pair, with Williams' aces and tens taking the cake.

Jeff Williams will advance to the next round.

Following the hand, Haxton is just under 27,000.
