The remaining 14 players are bagging up for tomorrow and will return at 2 p.m. A full recap and chip counts will follow.
William Slaght and Peter Neff managed to go all-in before the flop, with Slaght at risk for his last million chips.
The dealer proposed a board and Peter Neff made a nut flush for the high and A-2 for the low. He scooped that juicy pot and William Slaght was eliminated.
Action was picked up with stacks all-in, cards on their backs, and Veerachai Vongxaiburana all-in for his remaining 190,000 against Richard Crooks.
The board ran out and the aces with a king kicker took down the whole pot as Vongxaiburana did not have a low and he exited the tournament in 16th place.
Stuart Easton raised to 100,000 and William Slaght called. Just after him, Justin Liberto re-raised, to 475,000. Action was back on Easton, and he announced all-in for 1,400,000. Slaght folded and Liberto called.
The board ran and Easton made trips seven to eliminate the chip leader of Day 1, Stuart Easton.
Players are now moving to the last two tables.
Joey Couden raised to 120,000 from the cutoff and on the button, Luiz Silva potted it to 480,000 which saw the Richard Crooks blind re-pot, which folded out Couden, but Silva called for his 680,000 stack.
The board ran out and Silva took his leave in 18th place.
