Action began with Brian Hacker who opened to 37,000. Mel Judah called before Alexey Makarov squeezed to 144,000 from the small blind. Hacker called but Judah folded, and the two went off to the flop.
The flop came down and after thinking about it for a bit, Makarov moved all in. Hacker looked at his hand to check his cards and announced a call after that.
Hacker had flopped a set and it left Makarov drawing extremely thin. The turn was the ending all matters instantly and that was it for Makarov. The dealer put out the meaningless on the river anyways. With that, the man who began the day as the chip leader was sent to the rail in ninth place.
