In a hand that would cripple Keven Stammen, Kevin Elia opened to 34,000 from under-the-gun and action folded around to Stammen in the hijack, who three-bet to 80,000. It was folded back around to Elia, who made it 150,000 on top. Stammen fall hard into the tank, and, after a couple minutes, Elia called the clock on him. A tournament director came over and have Stammen 70 seconds to act on his hand.

After a little more deliberation, Stammen announced he was all in and Elia snap-called all in for 491,000.

Stammen: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}
Elia: {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}


The board ran out {9-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{5-Spades}{4-Spades} and Elia doubled through Stammen, leaving him with just 90,000 behind.

In the very next hand, Stammen open-pushed all in and action folded around to David Forster, who went all in himself to put Stammen at risk.

Forster: {6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}
Stammen: {A-Spades}{4-Spades}

The {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{5-Spades} board left Stammen second-best and he was eliminated.
