Chad Trentacosta  –  Eliminated in 13th Place  ($2,588)
Adam Adler  –  Eliminated in 14th Place  ($2,588)

Kenneth Frey limped under the gun for 5,000, Anthony Zinno moved all in from UTG+1 for 57,000, and Frey tanked for a while before he called with KsQd. Zinno turned over AsQc, and needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came 10h4s4cAhQs, and Zinno won the pot with two pair, aces and queens, to double up in chips.

Anthony Zinno  –  127,000  (25 bb)
Kenneth Frey  –  75,000  (15 bb)

A short while later, Frey was all in from the cutoff for 62,000 with Ad9h, but he was dominated by the Ac10d of Jaime Wiegrefe in the small blind.

The board came KcJsJd6sQd, and Wiegrefe won the pot with a rivered ace-high straight to eliminate Frey in 12th place.

Jaime Wiegrefe  –  245,000  (49 bb)
Kenneth Frey  –  Eliminated in 12th Place  ($2,990)

A short while later, after the blinds increased to 3,000-6,000 with a 6,000 ante, Anthony Zinno was eliminated in 11th place.

Anthony Zinno  –  Eliminated in 11th Place  ($2,990)

When Zinno was eliminated, there was already a hand in progress at the other table between Nick Yunis and Danny Monosson.

Monosson was all in for 98K with QsQc, and he was a favorite to double up against the 8h8d of Yunis, who barely had him covered with 101K.

But the board came 8s4h2s6c8c, and Yunis flopped a set of eights and rivered quads to win the pot and eliminate Monosson in 10th place.

Nick Yunis  –  212,000  (35 bb)
Danny Monosson  –  Eliminated in 10th Place  ($2,990)
