On the first hand of the day, TK Miles opened to 250,000 from the cutoff and Sean Phillippi three-bet to 1,075,000 from the small blind. Thomas Gari called at risk for 825,000 from the big blind and Miles folded.

“Fair fight,” Phillippi said to Gari.

Gari was ahead with his pocket eights but Phillippi took the lead when he paired his king on the Ks7s4h flop. The Jd turn and Qc river finished the board and Hollywood legend Gari was eliminated in 19th place.
