Philip Long Eliminated in 29th Place ($229,281)
Level 29 : 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante
Tournament Director Jack Effel just called Table 441 the "action table." Here's why: On the next hand after the incredible Petit-Loosli encounter, James Alexander raised to 255,000 from the hijack and Philip Long moved all in for 1,540,000 from the cutoff. Alexander called, and it was a race situation.
The flop spelled disaster for Long, and he failed to improve on the turn and river. Long made his way to the payout desk, and the rest of the table exited the Amazon Room for their 20-minute break.
