After "MBEASY" bubbled the tournament in 144th place, the in-the-money eliminations came at a rapid pace. Among those to cash the tournament but fall short of the final table were David "Twizzler" Prociak (128th - $1,484.18), Katie "katelin" Lindsay (122nd - $1,571.49), Ryan "protential" Laplante (106th - $1,571.49), Mike "THICC" Delvecchio (79th - $2,008.01), Jared "DarrensRabbi" Jaffee (56th - $2,444.54)

Also cashing the tournament in 101st place for $1,571.49 was Roland "prngls12" Israelashvili. While it wasn't a big score, it was good enough to extend his all-time WSOP cashes lead to 226.

Another player to go deep was Daniel "DNegs" Negreanu, who was looking to capture his seventh gold bracelet. Unfortunately for "Kid Poker" and his legion of fans, he fell short busting in 18th place after running pocket nines into the tens of Matthew "Mendey" Mendez.

Other to fall short were Matthew "Mendey" Mendez (14th - $7,333.62), WSOP bracelet winner Michael "itwasthator0" Gagliano (13th - $7,333.62), and Josh "YoelRomero" King (9th - $11,960.78).

Daniel "IntoTheRiver" Fischer began the final table as the chip leader, but it was Sean "bahbababa" Prendiville who got down to business early. First, his king-nine bested the ace-jack of Matthew "Michmeister" Mich in an all-in preflop situation, and not long after his pocket queens held against Big Slick to bust Jon "jonnyg93" Gisler in seventh place.

Popular poker pro Jason "haderade" Somerville exited in sixth place after failing to win a race with ace-king against the pocket tens of Louis "PokeThese" Lynch, and then Prendiville's early momentum fizzled when he grew short and busted to Kevin "GoneBananas" Garosshen in fifth place.

Fischer was next to go getting unlucky when his king-ten failed to hold against Ryan "KOVID19" Ko's jack-ten, and not long after Lynch opened up a big chip lead.

Garosshen wound up dwindling to an extreme short stack before bowing out in third place to Ko, who entered heads-up play down more than 3:1 in chips. Eventually, Ko grew even shorter and got it in with queen-six only to see Lynch wake up with pocket sixes and hold.

The next tournament on the schedule – Event #3: $400 NLH– will take place at 3 p.m. PDT on Friday. The PokerNews Live Reporting Team will once again be reporting all the action, so be sure to tune in then to see who captures the second bracelet of the 2020 WSOP!
