It took about 20 minutes for the first elimination of the day, and it was no surprise that it was the short stack to fall. Jeffrey Yass managed a couple of doubles at the start of play, but it proved too little too late for the man from Haverford, Pennsylvania.

His demise came on a {2-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{3-Clubs} flop when Yass bet, Justin Bonomo raised and Yass three-bet. Bonomo made the call and then raised when Yass bet the {8-Hearts} turn. Yass called off his last chips holding the {q-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} for a pair of queens, which was out in front of Bonomo's {j-Clubs}{9-Clubs} flush and straight draws. Unfortunately for Yass, the {A-Clubs} spiked on the river to give Bonomo the flush and the win.
