Rahul Deevara on Day 1b.

More than nine hours ago no one held more chips than Rahul Deevara, who finished as the Day 1b chip leader with 466,000. He no doubt had high hopes of taking down the title, but those hopes just came to an end in 27th place.

We caught the action with roughly 120,000 in the pot and a board reading {9-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}. Corrie Wunstel had checked and Deevara bet 55,000. Wunstel then woke up with a check-raise to 126,000 and Deevara thought long and hard before moving all in for 370,000 total. Wunstel snap-called with the {A-Clubs}{9-Clubs} and Deevara was drawing with the {Q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}.

Deevara finished in 27th place and earned $6,961 for his efforts.
