We caught the action on a board reading {3-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{j-Spades}{k-Clubs}{3-Spades} and about 135,000 in the pot. Tim Hughes fired 37,000 from the small blind and Mark Fink, who won a ring a couple nights ago, moved all in from the button for roughly 145,000. Hughes barely had him covered and thought for about 30 seconds before calling. Fink had a look as if he'd been caught and was hesitant to turn over his {A-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}. Hughes revealed the {K-Hearts}{8-Hearts} and that was the end of the road for Fink.

Heading into the Main Event, Fink held the lead in the Casino Championship with 102.5 points. He earned five points for his 29th-place finish, giving him 107.5. That's 20 points ahead of Mark Bonsack, who is still in this tournament. If Bonsack can place 17th or better, he will overtake the lead.
