Daniel Idema raised in the cutoff and Steve Landfish three-bet from the small blind. Idema raised once more which put Landfish all in who called.
Landfish was in good shape to double up and the was clean although it gave Idema some backdoor straight and flush outs to go along with the two remaining jacks. The on the turn gave Idema an open-ended straight draw and he could now eliminate Landfish with any seven, jack or queen. The river was the though and Landfish survived as Idema doubled up another short-stack.

We found Barry Greenstein all in and at risk again Matthew Gallin on the flop.
Greenstein, who famously signs a copy of his book, 'Ace on the River', to give to the opponent who busts him in each tournament, stood up from his chair and was about to sign and give Gallin his copy.
The turn was the though and Greenstein got the ace that he needed, albeit on the turn to storm into the lead. The river came the to double Greenstein up who sat back down with his book.

The same action occurred on the river and Idema showed for a flopped two pair. Landfish was clearly frustrated as he tossed his cards in the muck, leaving himself 580,000 behind.
In the very next hand, Landfish raised from the cutoff and was met with a three-bet from Barry Greenstein in the cutoff. The blinds folded, Landfish four-bet, and Greenstein made the call. Landfish bet the flop, Greenstein just called, and the dealer burned and turned the .

Isaac Haxton raised from early position and was soon three-bet by Steve Landfish from the button. The blinds got out of the way and Haxton called off for 56,000 total.
"I have two overs," Landfish observed. While the flop did not his one of his cards, it did provide him with the nut-flush draw. The turn gave him the said flush, leaving Haxton in want of a seven or ten on the river. Unfortunately for him, the river was neither and he was sent to the rail in seventh place.
One man who wasn't happy about the elimination was Haxton's good friend Justin Bonomo, who had just arrived to watch his friend in action. Right after the bust, Bonomo tweeted: "Sigh. Bonomo curse in full effect. Showed up to cheer on @ikepoker at his FT and he busted the second hand i was there for :("

Barry Greenstein raised in the cutoff and after quite a bit of thought, Isaac Haxton three-bet from the small blind. Greenstein re-raised and Haxton called all in to put his tournament life at risk.
The flop was a kind one to Haxton as it came to pull him into the lead. Greenstein would need to hit a ten or some kind of running straight or flush cards to eliminate Haxton. The on the turn meant that Haxton would have to avoid a ten or a queen now to survive. The river was the and Haxton won the hand to double up.
