Leif Force shoved from under the gun for about 1.69 million and Sam Simmons called from the small blind with a slightly smaller stack.
The two players were racing for the pot and Simmons needed to improve to survive. The board ran out and Simmons took the pot to double up, leaving Force with crumbs.
In the next hand, Joshua Turner raised to 260,000 from middle position and Force called from the big blind to put himself at risk for what looked like 230,000.
"I'll chop it, man," Turner said.
But the deck had other ideas; the board ran out and Turner took the pot to end Force's tournament.
