After nearly two and a half hours, we are finally in the money here in Event #52.
Brandon Meyers was first to act, and moved all in for 188,000. Dani Stern folded on the button, and Ognjen Sekularac asked for a count in the small blind. The dealer obliged, and then Sekularac re-shoved, having Meyers covered by a few dozen thousand. Kevin Eyster quickly surrendered his big blind.
One more table still had a hand in progress, but as soon as Fabian Quoss folded his hand, Meyers and Sekularac tabled theirs.
With the stacks nearly even, it was essentially a $53,781 race. Meyers didn't make a pair as the flop fell , but he did pick up a gut-shot straight draw and a backdoor flush draw. Sekularac held two of his tens, but even if a ten turned, the Serbian would still have a redraw to a full house.
The on the turn removed Meyers' hopes of making a flush, and left him with eight outs to survive. Unfortunately for him, the completed the board, and he was eliminated on an excruciatingly long bubble.
The remaining 18 players are now bagging and tagging. We will have full counts, the seat draw, and a recap for you shortly.
