Bach Rides the Roller Coaster

donpeters

David Bach recently eclipsed the one-million mark, but just lost it back to 870,000. Justin Bonomo beat him with numero uno, {7-}{5-}{4-}{3-}{2-}, after grabbing it after the second draw.

Don't worry though Bach fans, he was able to climb right back to seven figures shortly thereafter versus Eli Elezra. Bach made a ten, {10-}{6-}{5-}{4-}{3-}, and Elezra couldn't beat it. Elezra was left very short and is now in jeopardy of going home next.
