Michael Quick Eliminated in 10th Place ($31.153)

Michael Quick

Robin Ylitalo raised it up to 60,000 from early position and Barny Boatman made a three bet behind him. That was when all the action started as Paul Dasilva pushed allin and Michael Quick behind him pushed all in as well. Action folded to Ylitalo who quickly folded. Boatman needed a little more time to think and leaned back. Quick, who's been enjoying himself all day and has had a big smile the entire time, said "This is a big moment for me". Boatman eventually folded and soon everyone found out what the hands were.

Quick, who was at risk for 595,000 total, had   . Dasilva had slightly more than that and tabled   . The dealer didn't make a whole show about it and rapidly burned and put the cards on the table:     |   |  . It went so fast that it took a mili second for Quick to realize that his opponent had backed doored a flush. "Nice hand" he said like a true gentleman.

There's now just nine players left who can all brag on facebook, twitter, instagram, iMessage and all other sorts of new communication that they've made a World Series of Poker final table. Some of them even grabbed their phone and actually called home to let them know. Others celebrated the old fashion way, with people in person on the rail.

We'll be right back as we gather the official chip counts and set up on the rail of the big stage in the middle of the Amazon Room.

Shoves, No Calls

Van Nguyen (twice) and Roger Lussier have shoved so far, but no player has called yet. Michael Quick is a bit on the short side as well, so there's three people in the absolute danger zone. So far, it's mostly blinds and antes being traded around though.

Sandler Wins a Small One

Noah Sandler made it 65,000 to go from early position and action folded to Taras Kripps in the big blind. Kripps raised it up to 130,000 and Sandler made the call. Kripps made a 130,000 continuation-bet on     and Sandler made the call. The turn was the   and Kripps gave up. He checked and folded to Sandler's 200,000 bet.

Barny Boatman has two big supporters on the rail: Brother Ross Boatman is here and he is accompanied by Team Pro Vicky Coren. Boatman is about to make the final table which will be played, and broadcasted, on the big stage, where not to long a go the Big One High Roller was being played. Boatman looks ready, and so do his two railbirds.

Michael Perrone Eliminated in 11th Place ($31,153)

Michael Perrone made it 50,000 to go from the cut off and saw Noah Sandler make it 125,000 behind him. Perrone shoved all in for 385,000 and Sandler made the call. Perrone had    to work with and was slightly behind against Sandler's   . The flop would give Perrone a pair but Sandler's hit even better:    . After the   on the turn Perrone must have had some hope, but the   on the river eliminated those as well.

There's ten players left now, and they are redrawing to one table.

Perrone On a Slippery Slope

Things haven't been going to well for Michael Perrone. Just now he lost another sizable pot. From middle position he raised it up to 50,000 and he pushed all in after Aditya Prasetyo had made it 125,000. Prasetyo made the call and it was clear that there was a cooler situation going on. Aditya Prasetyo tabled    while Michael Perrone had a monster, though slightly smaller, of his own:   .

No ace or other winning combination for Perrone with     |   |   on the table. Perrone now slips into the danger zone, while Prasetyo has a lot more breathing room all of the sudden.

Nothing Happenin'

Though both tables are short handed, nothing much has happened. There's rarely a pot that goes further than the flop, and if it does it is checked down. The only active player is Paul Dasilva who has shoved all in a couple of times after someone else raised. No callers yet, no show downs.

O'Donoghu and Kripps Swap Places

Taras Kripps raised it up to 50,000 from the button and he called as Brian O'Donoghue made it 125,000 to go from the small blind. O'Donoghue would bet all the streets and Kripps would call all of them. O'Donoghue bet 80,000 on the     flop, 145,000 on the   turn and 175,000 on the   river. Kripps called it off but had to muck as O'Donoghue showed    for the nuts.

Mike Jukich Eliminated in 12th Place ($31,153)

Mike Jukich

After Paul Dasilva limped under-the-gun for 20,000, Mike Jukich shoved all in for about 450,000 from the button. Robin Ylitalo, who started the day as chip leader but already lost a little bit, reshoved all in and Dasilva folded. Jukich tabled    and was in trouble against Ylitalo's   .

The board would make no impact on either player:     |   |   and Jukich left the tournament just a couple of seconds before the first break.

Valentin Messina Eliminated in 13th Place ($24,449)

Valentin Messina

Right after the big hand he lost against Barny Boatman, Frenchman Valentin Messina is busted from the tournament. He shoved all in for 114,000 under-the-gun and was looked up by Michael "Mike" perrone in the big blind. Messina had the better hand with    but Perrone's    would win the hand.

Till the river there was nothing going on but that last community card hit Perrone:     |   |  . Messina takes home $24,449, all other players are guaranteed $31,153 at this point.

Boatman Doubles Through Messina

From middle position Valentin Messina raised it up to 40,000. Michael Quick made the call from the button and Barney Boatman joined the action from the small blind. The flop came     and Boatman checked to Messina who made a 55,000 continuation-bet. This got rid of Quick but Boatman would put up a fight. The Brit made it 110,000 to go and called as Messina shoved all in. Boatman showed    for flopped trips, while Messina had    for two pair.

The   on the turn and   on the river did nothing for the Frenchman and Boatman received a full double-up. Boatman now plays a little shy off 1.2 million, while Messina is short with just six big blinds.

Boatman Gets a Slap on the Wrist (from Himself)

Valentin Messina raised it up to 40,000 under-the-gun and with Michael Quick still missing (bathroom break), action was quickly folded to Barny Boatman on the button. He made it 100,000 to go and action was on Van Tran in the small blind. He announced all in for 255,000 rather fast and the big blind and Messina folded immediately. Boatman laughed, like he was caught with his hand in the cookie jar, but eventually made the call because of the good prize he was getting.

"You had to have a pair?" Boatman laughed as Tran showed   . Boatman himself would be fighting an uphill battle with the mere   . "What?" Van Tran screamed. Some players at the table saw a bad beat coming but Tran was saved from that trauma in the making:     |   |  .

Boatman gave himself, literally, a slap on the wrist, and continued with about 600,000 in chips.

Greg Oleson Eliminated in 14th Place ($24,449)

The situation for Perrone with his    couldn't get any better as Oleson showed   . The board wouldn't change a thing and Oleson left the tournament in 14th place:     |   |  .

Van Tran Doubles Through Noah Sandler

Van Tran shoved all in from the hijack position for 103,000 and he was, after quite some tanking, looked up by Noah Sandler in the small blind. Michael Quick mucked his big blind and there was a show down with Van Tran at risk.

Van Tran had    and needed to improve against Noah Sandler's   . He flopped an open-ended with     but wouldn't hit that. The   on the turn was a blank but the   on the river gave him the pair he needed.
