Jed Hoffman went all in under the gun with about ten big blinds, and Loren Klein called on Hoffman's immediate left.

Jed Hoffman: {q-Clubs}{9-Clubs}
Loren Klein: {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}

Board: {9-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{a-Clubs}{7-Clubs}

Rian Mullins bet into two players, from under the gun, on a {7-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} flop.

Marshall Barnes reraised all in from the cutoff, Craig Disalvo folded in the small blind, and Mullins called.

Marshall Barnes: {6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}
Rian Mullins: {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}

Mullins pocket kings had Barnes far behind, and the turn {q-Hearts} and river {a-Hearts} sealed the eighth place finish for Barnes.

Nethery Pushes Barnes Out of the Pot

GeoffFisk • Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante

Marshall Barnes limped in early position, John Nethery raised to 75,000 in the hijack, and Barnes called.

Both players checked the {k-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{8-Spades} flop. Barnes bet 90,000 on the {7-Hearts} turn, and Nethery reraised all in. A call would have put Barnes, with 192,000 behind, at risk.

Barnes elected to fold, and Nethery chipped up.

Hoffman Takes a Small Pot

GeoffFisk • Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 16,000 ante

Jed Hoffman went all in under the gun for 137,000. John Nethery, not realizing Hoffman had shoved in front of him, attempted to open raise to 45,000 from the small blind.

The floor ruled that the 45,000 would stay in the pot, but Nethery would have the option to fold and not call the remainder of the 137,000 bet. Nethery did fold, and Hoffman took down a few extra chips.

Madison Austria

Madison Austria went all in preflop for 143,000 from early position, and Craig Disalvo called from the hijack with an almost identical stack.

Madison Austria: {k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Craig Disalvo: {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}

Board: {q-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}

Disalvo was ahead when the cards were tabled, and his ace-high held up, sending Austria to the rail as the first casualty at the final table.
