Jarrett Nash Eliminated in 171st Place ($44,655)

At the beginning of Day 5 of the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event, Jarrett Nash was no where to be found. His chips were stacked for him, and his chip bag was draped over his chair. Slowly, he began to blind out, until he was down to his last 2,000 chips here in Level 22.

On his final hand, Tournament Director Bill Bruce tossed in his last two yellow T1,000 chips (two thirds of an ante), and mucked his hand.

"Jarrett Nash, 171st place," Bruce said into his walkie talkie.

There have been a few rumors circulating on Twitter, so we asked Seth Palansky, the vice president of corporate communications for Caesars Interactive Entertainment Inc., to explain the situation.

According to Palansky, Nash observes the sabbath, meaning that from sundown Friday night to sundown Saturday he was unable to play. Nash explained this to the WSOP staff last night, and left before the day was over. He fully understood the consequences of not playing until after the dinner break today, and left his Total Rewards card, knowing that he was going to bust.

Nash missed an $8,000 pay jump by nine eliminations, and will have to settle with $44,655.
