Ken Aldridge

Ken Aldridge started the day as the chip leader, however, he missed out on a spot on the final table after he was first left short when his two pair ran into the wheel of Robert Campbell on a board of {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}.

One hand later, David Benyamine limped in and so did Aldridge in the cutoff. Ed Vartughian raised the button and Benyamine called, as did Aldridge. On the {7-Clubs}{3-Spades}{2-Spades} flop, Benyamine check-folded to a bet of Aldridge and the raise of Vartughian, Aldridge called all in for 45,000 in total.

Ken Aldridge: {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{10-Hearts}
Ed Vartughian: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{3-Clubs}

Vartughian already had the nut low and plenty of outs to deal the final blow. The {q-Diamonds} turn changed nothing yet, but the {4-Diamonds} on the river gave Vartughian two pair. Aldridge was eliminated in 10th place for $27,287 and the remaining nine players will now redraw to a single table.
