Dwyte Pilgrim's day was cut short when he became David Sands' second victim of the day. We are now down to 20 players from the starting field of 23.
Donald Offord got things started in this hand with a middle-position raise to 50,000. David Tuthill went all in for 23,000 from the button, which is when Kyle Knecht raised to 300,000, from the big blind, causing Offord to fold.
Tuthill needed to improve and wasn't able to do so on the flop, which came , nor dd he find any help on the turn, which came . However, the on the river was all Tuthill needed to boost himself back up to 80,000 in chips. Meanwhile, Knecht has 1,100,000 or so.
Getty Mattingsley open shoved for about 100,000 chips and got called by Kyle Knecht on the button.
Mattingsley is out of the tournament and Knecht now has about 1,200,000 chips.
Alexander Carr came in with the shortest stack today and looked as though he might get a second chance when his held up after his all-in bet was called by Santiago Nadal who turned over . However, as soon as we returned to write up about his fortunate turn, he was eliminated by David Sands, who should now be sitting with about 770,000 in chips.
Calvin Kordus raised to 36,000 in the hijack position and was called by Dwyte Pilgrim in the big blind. The flop came and Pilgrim led out for 75,000. Not to be outdone, Kordus made an all-in raise, which led Pilgrim to fold.
