Hand #33: Trevor Pope raised to 60,000 in the cutoff, and Jamie Armstrong defended his big blind. The flop fell , Armstrong checked, and Pope continued for 50,000. Armstrong check-raised to 120,000, and Pope folded.
Hand #34: David Peters open-shoved for 175,000 in early position, Pope called in the hijack, and the rest of the players folded.
Peters was in rough shape, and the flop gave Pope a set of queens. Peters needed running hearts or running straight cards to survive, but was drawing dead when the turned. A meaningless completed the board, and Peters was eliminated in eighth place.
Pope is back up to 3.565 million chips.
