We missed the elimination of Sarah Stefan, who made the journey up from Chicago, but we managed to learn some details after the fact.
It happened when the under-the-gun player raised to 900 and a middle-position player called. Stefan, who was sitting with 14,000 on the button, then three-bet to 3,200. The player in the small blind flatted, the other two players called ,and it was four-way action to the flop.
Action checked to Stefan and she jammed for roughly 11,000. Only the original raiser called and the hands were turned up.
Stefan was way out in front, but after a turn bricked, a spiked on the river to give her opponent a winning set. With that, the cracked kings sent Stefan to the rail.

Three levels are in the books here on Day 1b of the MSPT Grand Falls Main Event and that means it's time for the first 10-minute break of the day.
After the under-the-gun player limped, Minnesota's Steve Belland raised to 1,100 next to act. The player on his left then three-bet to 3,300 and action folded back to the UTG limper, who folded.
Belland called and then both players checked the flop.
When the appeared on the turn, Belland bet 1,500 and his opponent called to see the river.
Belland opted to bet again, this time 7,000, and his opponent thought for a bit before folding.
"It's a set," Belland claimed without showing his cards.
