Alfredo Fernandez

Alfredo Fernandez raised from under the gun and Eric Rivkin moved all in for just under 200,000 out of the big blind. Fernandez called with JsJc and only needed to dodge an ace against Rivkin’s AdJh.

The board came 7c7s3c6h9h and Rivkin was eliminated in 19th place to move the tournament to two tables.

Before the staff was even done breaking the third table in the tournament, Fernandez eliminated Paul Nguyen in 18th place to leave the field with just 17 players.

Fernandez is now one of the chip leaders while Rivkin picked up $509 and Nguyen earned $610.

Alfredo Fernandez – 600,000
Paul Nguyen – Eliminated
Eric Rivkin –
