Adam Owen began the day as the chip leader, but unfortunately he won't be around for Day 3, falling just shy of the final table.

Stephen Deutsch raised in the cutoff, and Owen three-bet from the small blind, committing 75,000 of his remaining 115,000 chips. Mark Fraser called from the big blind, as did Deutsch.

Each player drew two cards, with Owen checking, Fraser betting, and then Deutsch and Owen both calling.

Owen drew two again, Fraser drew one, and Deutsch patted.

Owen and Fraser both checked to Deutsch, who bet. Owen flicked in his last 15,000 chips, and Fraser called the full 50,000 bet to start a side pot.

Owen still needed to draw one, while Fraser now patted and Deutsch broke his hand, drawing one.

Fraser bet the end and got a call from Deutsch.

Fraser showed {7-}{6-}{5-}{3-}{2-} for number two. Deutsch showed a losing {8-}{6-}{5-}{3-}{2-}, and Owen flipped over his cards and tightly squeezed them, saying he was drawing live to number one.

Owen however revealed a paired {5-}, ending his run in 8th place, while Fraser takes over the chip lead as the players merge onto the unofficial seven-handed final table.
