We just had three players bust almost simultaneously on separate tables, all short-stacked players who failed in their attempts to better their status during the early going.
First it was Ross Mallor being eliminated in 22nd. In his final hand, Tony Gargano raised to 16,000 from the button, Mallor reraised all in for 81,000 from the small blind, then Salman Behbehani four-bet shoved from the big blind and Gargano stepped aside.
Mallor had and Behbehani , and when the board came , Behbehani's spade flush meant the end of Mallor's Event #41 run.
Meanwhile, Roland Israelashvili entered today last in chips of the remaining players, and he soon got his stack all in against Alex Manzano only to be felted in 21st place.
Then it was Jonathan Poche losing his stack to Lee Goldman over on Table 447 to earn a 20th-place cash.
