In before-the-dinner-break action, Kyle Julius and Thomas Muehloecker were eliminated. They were on different tables, and Julius busted before Muehloecker joined him on the rail.

In Julius' bust out, he three-bet jammed from the big blind after Martin Finger opened with a raise from the cutoff seat. Finger quickly made the call with the {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs} and had Julius on the ropes with the {6-Spades}{6-Clubs}. No help came for Julius on the {Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} board, and he was eliminated.

Shortly after, Muehloecker was all in against Anton Astapau. Unlike Julius, Muehloecker went into the all-in clash with the best of it, holding the {A-Spades}{J-Spades} to Astapau's {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}. His hand didn't hold up, though, as the flop, turn, and river ran out {8-Clubs}{5-Spades}{5-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} to finish Astapau off with the winner.
