Darren Elias

Darren Elias could not get any traction this afternoon and was down to 71,000 soon after the break. He moved all in after Brandon Adams opened to 40,000 and he was good shape preflop.

Adams: QcJd
Elias: Ad4d

Elias was ahead for the double and faded Adams’ two live cards on the Th8s7s flop. Adams added an open-ended straight draw on the Kd turn but it was the paired Qs river that sent the three-time WPT champ out in fifth place.

Brandon Adams – 2,200,000 (147 bb)
