Still Ten Handed After Two Double Ups

Play has slowed down at this 10 handed final table, but we still had a couple of chances to get down to the official final table of nine. First, Javid Javani got it all in on the flop with a flush draw against the top pair of chip leader Steve Potashnick, and he made his flush on the river.

Just now, it was Jeffery Bati who was all in with Ace-King against the pocket tens of Rebecca Wooten. Bati flopped a king, turn an ace, and held up on the river.

Stay tuned to find out who is able to move on to the finals tomorrow!
