Eli Elezra Eliminated in 20th Place ($7,869)

With just two hands left before play ended for the day, Eli Elezra's tournament came to an end.

Henry Hull raised from the cut off and Elezra and Ming Reslock called from the blinds. Elezra got all his chips in after a flop of {9-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}. Reslock and Hull continued to bet the last two streets, which brought the {4-Hearts} and {8-Clubs}.

Elezra mucked his hand when Reslock showed a pair of jacks for the high and Hull showed ace-2 to take the low. Elezra took home $7,869 for 20th place.

Morten Holm Eliminated in 21st Place ($7,869)

Morten Holm took his chances, but just couldn't beat Robert Price.

Holm got his chips in the middle with king-king-3-10 and was called by Price who held ace-2-3-5. When the board came {8-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{5-Spades}{2-?}, Price's two pair were good for the high while his ace-2 took the low.

Holm's play was good for $7,869.

Jon Nakatani Eliminated in 23rd Place ($7,869)

Jon Nakatani got all his chips in preflop and was called by both Adam Quiggle and Richard Toth.

The players checked down the board of {3-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}, and Nakatani got chopped up by his opponents, with Quiggle getting the high end with pocket kings and Toth taking the low with ace-4.

Nakatani took home $7,869 for his play.

All the Blood Sucked from Alex Michaels

Alex "Dracula" Michaels was rockin' and rollin' for the past few levels. He built his chip stack up to over 250,000. But, it seems like the joys of a big stack may have blurred his vision a little. Michaels began playing an extreme frequency of hands and has since dropped three huge pots to bust from the tournament.

Deeb Busts Ben Gold in 25th Place ($7,869)

Ben Gold was all in preflop for 11,000 from under the gun. Freddy Deeb completed the raise to 16,000, Henry Hull called from middle position, and Geoff Bouvier called from the big blind.

The flop came down {A-Clubs} {Q-Clubs} {9-Hearts} and action checked to Deeb. Hull folded, as did Bouvier. Deeb scooped the side pot and then took his {A-Diamonds} {Q-Diamonds} {10-Clubs} {5-Spades} against Gold's {8-Spades} {6-Hearts} {4-Spades} {3-Diamonds}.

The turn brought the {A-Hearts} and the river the {5-Diamonds}, making Deeb a full house and leaving no low possible.
