Michael Quick Eliminated in 10th Place ($31.153)
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.

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.
