Steve Gross -- 24th Place

From under the gun, winner of Event #41: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha (Six Handed) Steve Gross raised to 160,000. Action then folded to Phil Laak in the small blind, and he made the call. Then in the big blind, Brandon Steven reraised all in, having Gross covered but not Laak. Gross called all in for approximately 1.2 million, then Laak folded the {7-Spades}{7-Clubs} face up.

Steven showed the {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} and was up against the {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds} for the at-risk Gross.

The {J-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} flop, {3-Hearts} turn, and {J-Clubs} river all kept Steven in front with his pocket tens, and Gross was eliminated in 24th place. As the first player to hit the rail in the money, Gross earned $173,723 for his efforts.
