Keven Stammen Eliminated in 16th Place ($16,588)
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.
The board ran out 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.
The board left Stammen second-best and he was eliminated.
