Andrew Prock took down a other small pot when Jeff Shulman folded    on the turn of a      board, with Prock raking in the small pot. When he did so, his rail chanted a chorus of "Prock The Casbah". You have to wonder when they will run out of 80's tunes featuring the word "rock".

The last few hands have seen the players each get a walk. The average stack compared to the limits is a lot better now and so play may finally slow down a little.

Just a few moments ago we told you how Martin left himself crippled. Well, now it's all over for Martin as he makes his way out the door in 4th place.

Martin's last hand began when he raised from under the gun - enough to put him all in for 39,000. Prock was in the big blind and made the call. Martin was in front with his   , while Prock's    was still live.

The       board would see the pair of twos enough to send Prock the pot and eliminate Martin. With that, we are down to three-handed.

Raymond Dehkharghani - 5th place

Raymond Dehkharghani is the latest player to make his way out of this tournament. The end of Dehkharghani's night began when he opened the cutoff holding   . Andrew Prock then three-bet out of the small blind and Dehkharghani quickly four-bet . Prock then capped it and Dehkharghani called and then had less than a big bet left.

The     flop would see Dehkharghani commit his last chips and the two players would turn their hands over. Dehkharghani 's    was in need of some help against Prock's    and when the   hit the turn, Dehkharghani would begin shaking everyone's hand. The meaningless   on the river changed nothing and Dehkharghani was out the door.
