Jon Turner opens the button to 24,000, and Marc Friedman three-bets to 36,000 from the small blind. Turner calls.

Friedman draws one card and bets; Turner two and a call. On the second round, Friedman is pat and bets 24,000. Turner improves to a one-draw and likes it enough to call. They both pat the river, and Friedman bets all in for what looks like exactly one full bet of 24,000. Turner shrugs and calls.

Friedman shows down       for the eighty-six, but Turner has drawn better. He tables      , and the smooth eight earns him the knockout.

Friedman wishes his table luck, though his son Adam has a few choice words for Turner. "F**** you!" the younger Friedman jokes as he and Turner shake hands. "Just kidding, good luck."

Jon Turner - 410,000
Marc Friedman - Eliminated

Benny Glaser has been doing some serious work in the last few orbits. Thanks to some recent stumbles from Sergey Rybachenko, Glaser is now the commanding chip leader with nearly twice as many chips as his nearest foe. In the most recent pot, he extends that lead even further.

Glaser opens the cutoff to 24,000, and Jon Turner three-bets to 36,000 on the button. Glaser four-bets to 48,000, and Turner calls. They each draw one card, and Turner calls the 12,000. Glaser is pat now and still betting, while Turner draws one more card and calls for 24,000. They both pat the last round, and Glaser fires right back out for the last 24,000. Turner doesn't seem to love it, but he makes the call to see what's what.

"Seven," Glaser announces, and Turner slaps his hand down in frustration.      , and Number Three wins him the pot.

Benny Glaser - 910,000
Jon Turner - 255,000

First in from the button, Steve Billirakis comes in raising to 24,000. Sergey Rybachenko (small blind) and Toby Mulloy (big blind) call to draw some cards.

Rybachenko draws two cards; Mulloy and Billirakis two apiece. Rybachenko likes his hand, though, and he leads out for 12,000. Mulloy raises to 24,000, and Billirakis makes it three bets for 36,000 total. Rybachenko calls, Mulloy four-bets to 48,000, and Billirakis caps it with an all-in five-bet to 54,000 total. Both opponents call, and Billirakis is at risk.

Rybachenko is the only one still drawing a card, and he check-calls a bet of 24,000 from Mulloy. The last round sees Rybachenko draw one more card and check again, and Mulloy checks behind him.

Mulloy tables      , and Billirakis realizes he can beat it. He enthusiastically fans out      , tripling up with his eighty-six. Mulloy collects the sidepot as Rybachenko mucks.

Steve Billirakis - 234,000
Toby Mulloy - 175,000
Sergey Rybachenko - 650,000

Steve Billirakis opens to 24,000, and Sergey Rybachenko three-bets to 36,000 in postion. Billirakis calls.

Both players draw one card, and Billirakis check-calls a bet of 12,000. Rybachenko is pat now, and he bets again. Billirakis draws the same single card and check-calls 24,000. On the last round, Billirakis still needs one card, and Rybachenko pats and bets again. Billirakis spends a long while in the tank before folding.

Sergey Rybachenko - 760,000
Steve Billirakis - 100,000

Jon Turner raises from the cutoff and Phillip Hui calls in the big blind. Both players take two cards and Hui checks. Turner puts in a bet and Hui raises the action with Turner calling.

Hui moves all in after drawing one and Turner calls after taking one as well. Turner pats his third draw and shows      . Hui is drawing live with a     . He pulls a   though, and is eliminated.

Phillip Hui - Eliminated

Brock Parker opens the cutoff to 24,000, and action comes to Phillip Hui in the small blind. "Bump it," he says, putting 24,000 chips into the pot. In the ensuing discussion, it appears that he intended to raise but failed to recognize Parker's opening raise in front of him.

We know from Hui's previous experience that "Pump it," does not equal a raise.

It sounds like Hui heeded the advice, but the "bump" drew some sideways looks too. The floor is called, and the verbal declaration is ruled a non-standard betting action. "'Bump it' means nothing," the floorman rules. It's a call. Benny Glaser calls from the big blind too.

Everyone takes two cards, and Glaser leads the betting for 12,000. Parker says, "Bump it," as he folds. Hui check-calls, though, and it's heads-up the rest of the way. Glaser is pat and bets, while Hui draws two more cards and calls the 24,000. On the last round, Hui improves to a one-draw and check-calls one last bet from his pat opponent.

Glaser tables       to win the pot with an eighty-seven.

Benny Glaser - 555,000
Phillip Hui - 136,000

They draw one for the second draw and Rybachenko bets with Brown calling. Rybachenko draws one and Brown pats on the third draw. Rybachenko bets once more and Brown calls. Rybachenko fans       to win the pot. He now stands far above the field with 650,000. Brown holds onto 210,000.

Moments after tripling up, Dutch Boyd drops a significant pot to leave himself once again on the short stack. This time, he's unable to recover.

Glaser draws one card and bets. The other two draw two cards apiece, and they both check-call. Boyd has just 25,000 chips left in front of him now. Everyone draws the same amount on the next round, but it's Boyd who leads out into the pot for 20,000. Glaser raises, Turner folds, and Boyd calls all in for his tournament life.

Under the gun, Kyle Miaso moves all in for 11,000. Dutch Boyd makes the full raise to 20,000 next to act, and Brock Parker defends his big blind. Parker draws two cards and folds on the next round, so Miaso ends up heads-up for his tournament life.
