Paul "yogaprince62" Tong Eliminated in 11th ($7,404)

• Level 33: 30,000-60,000, 6,000 ante

Landon "ActionDealer" Tice raised to 120,000 from early position Paul "yogaprince62" Tong called from the small blind and the big blind called to.

The flop came the {9-Clubs}{k-Spades}{6-Hearts}. Tong bet 195,000, Tice called and the third player folded.

The turn was the {a-Hearts}. Tong bet 390,000 and Tice called again.

The river came the {7-Clubs}. Tong bet 780,000, Tice raised to 1,928,894 to force Tong all in who snap called.

Tong showed the {a-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} for two-pair but it was no good against the {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts} straight of Tice. Tong was eliminated and Tice took the chip lead in dramatic fashion.

Kristen "krissyb24" Bicknell Eliminated in 12th Place ($7,404)

Kristen Bicknell
Kristen Bicknell

After losing most of her chips with {a-}{j-} to the {a-}{q-} of Tony Dunst, who doubled, Kristen "krissyb24" Bicknell didn't have to wait long to get it in.

In what would be her final hand, Paul "yogaprince62" Tong raised to 120,000 from the cutoff and then called when Bicknell jammed for 231,506 from the small blind.

Kristen "krissyb24" Bicknell: {a-Hearts}{7-Spades}
Paul "yogaprince62" Tong: {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}

The {2-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{q-Spades} flop left Bicknell in need of runner-runner straight cards, but the {6-Clubs} turn took away that option. Bicknell was drawing dead and she officially took her leave in 12th place after the meaningless {5-Spades} was run out on the river.

Raman "Acrogum" Afanasenka Eliminated in 13th Place ($5,882)

Chad_Holloway • Level 32: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Raman "Acrogum" Afanasenka moved all in for 202,784 from the cutoff and Landon "ActionDealer" Tice called from the button. Both blinds folded and the hands were turned up.

Raman "Acrogum" Afanasenka: {a-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}
Landon "ActionDealer" Tice: {a-Spades}{8-Clubs}

The {7-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} flop gave Afanasenka a flush draw and the {4-Hearts} turn an added straight draw. Unfortunately for him, the {j-Hearts} river was a brick and his tournament came to an end.

Chance Kornuth

Chance "bingshui" Kornuth raised to 100,000 from the button James "Danfriel" Gilbert three-bet to 333,333 from the small blind, Kornuth moved all in over the top for 1,071,692 and was called.

Kornuth was in bad shape with the {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} against the {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}.

But he had not seen the worst of it yet as the flop came {q-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{q-Spades} to give every queen in the deck to Gilbert and end it for Kornuth who was eliminated in 14th place, an impressive run after finishing in fourth place in last night's Event #17.

Ryan "Santasbzack2" Stoker Eliminated in 15th Place ($5,882)

Chad_Holloway • Level 31: 20,000-40,000, 4,000 ante

Paul "yogaprince62" Tong raised to 80,000 from early position and was met bet an all-in three-bet jam for 960,167 from Ryan "Santasbzack2" Stoker next to act. Action folded back to Tong and he called.

Paul "yogaprince62" Tong: {q-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}
Ryan "Santasbzack2" Stoker: {k-Spades}{a-Spades}

Stoker got it in as a huge favorite but lady luck was not on his side as the board ran out {10-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} to give Tong the win with trip queens.
