After a round of triple draw selected by Bill Chen, the players moved on to Robert Mizrachi's selection: PLO8.
Raise-and-takes dominated the round, and in the only raised pot that saw a flop, Daniel Idema opened to 17,000 on the button and was called by Bill Chen in the big blind. Both players checked the flop, and Chen check-folded to 30,000 on the turn.
Another round of the same game followed as Shane Abbott chose it, but no flops hit the felt.

Idema folded, and Schaff announced all in over the top. Mizrachi tossed his hand into the muck after thinking for a bit.
Kassela was in awful shape with a worse draw and a worse hand. Idema lamented folding the best hand, and the dealer burned and turned a to give Kassela some hope in the form of a flush draw. The river was a brick though, and Kassela became the first player eliminated at the official final table.
