We missed the elimination of John Dalessandri, but we do know he was ousted after a bad beat by Sam Higgs. Dalessandri got his chips in holding and was well out in front of Higgs' ; however, the latter wound up making a straight with his low cards, and that was all she wrote for Dalessandri.
Not long after, Geoffrey Mooney limped from the button and the small blind did the same. Higgs then exercised his option from the big with a raise, Mooney called, and the small blind folded. When the flop came down , Higgs bet 7,000, Mooney called, and the appeared on the turn.
This time Higgs checked, and Mooney fired out a big bet. Higgs check-raised the pot and Mooney called off to created a pot well over 100K.
Mooney had turned trips, but he was drawing dead as Higgs held a full house. The meaningless was put out on the river, and then Mooney took his leave from the tournament. With that, the field is down to the final 16 players and will redraw down to two tables.
