1. Adam Miller - $199,024
2. Jim Collopy - $166,000

Javid Javani Eliminated in 3rd Place ($92,320)

Adam Miller raised to four million, and Javid Javani moved all in for 33 million and change. Miller slapped down a plaque for the call, and the cards were tabled.

Javani: [Kh][5c]
Miller: [7h][7c]

The window card was the [7s] on the flop of [Ah][7s][2c], leaving Javani all but dead. The board finished out [5d] and [Ks], rubbing some salt in the wounds for Javani's who's two pair was no good.

This leaves us heads up.

Javani Doubles Through Collopy

Javid Javani limped in from the small blind, and Jim Collopy moved all in, having Javani covered. Javani called with [Qd][9s], and he was surprisingly dominating the [9d][3d] of Collopy. The flop of [10s][7s][4s] gave Javani a flush draw, but he wouldn't need it, as the board finished out [Ac] and [Ad].

Collopy is down to 23 million after that hand, while Javani doubled up to 33 million.

Collopy Doubles Through Javani

From the small blind, Javid Javani raised to 3,350,000, only to see Jin Collopy move all in for 11.1 million. Once Javani got the official count, he made the call.

Collopy: [Ad][6s]
Javani: [Qc][Jc]

The flop of [Ac][10s][4s] shot Collopy out to a big lead, but Javani could still in with a king or running cards. The [Qd] on the turn paired up Javani, and meant that any face card would do now. Instead, the [9s] came, and Collopy doubled up to over 22 million.

Amir Turkzadeh Eliminated in 4th Place ($68,020)

Amir Turkzadeh did a commendable job on the short stack for most of the day, but his magic finally ran out at the hands of Javid Javani. Turkzadeh was all in preflop holding [Ac][4c], and he was well behind the [Jh][Jc] of Javani. The flop of [8c][6h][4s] gave Turkzadeh a pair of fours, and the [10c] on the turn brought him a flush draw as well.

However, the [Qh] completed the board, giving Javani the victory, and getting us to three handed play.

Exact Counts For the Final Four on Break

Blinds: 600,000-1,200,000

Adam Miller - 67,700,000
Javid Javani - 35,950,000
Jim Collopy - 17,300,000
Amir Turkzadeh - 11,250,000

Jordan Cristos Eliminated in 5th Place ($54,295)

Jordan Cristos fought valiantly with the short stack for quite some time, but his time finally came at the hands of Jim Collopy. Cristos got his short stack in holding [6c][6s], but he was dominated by the [10h][10d]. The flop of [As][Qc][8h] was clean for Collopy, and though the turn and river were close, they were the [7d] and [5c].

That leaves us with the final four. They talked for a few minutes about a potential chop, but a deal couldn't be struck, so we play on!

Steve Potashnick Eliminated in 6th Place ($43,380)

Steve Potashnick got his final chips in preflop holding [5c][5d], and he was well behind the [10c][10s] of Adam Miller. The board would run down [Ad][7d][7h][8h][7c], and the tens held up for Miller, who sent Potashnick to the rail.

This leaves us with just five players. As of yet, there haven't been any talks of a potential chop.

Cristos Catches Unlikely Double on River

Jordan Cristos was back down to two big blinds when he shoved with [Ks][10s], and he was behind but live against the [Ac][9c] of Steve Potashnick. The flop of [Qd][5s][3c] whiffed both players, but hte [Ah] on the turn gave Potashnick top pair. Cristos could only win with a jack now, and sure enough, the [Jh] peeled off on the river.

Cristos was still very short, but he has since found another double up, and is close to becoming a potential threat once again.

Jordan Cristos Crippled, Then Triples

After a raise to two million from Steve Potashnick, Amir Turkzadeh moved all in for just under nine million. Two seats over, Jordan Cristos moved all in, having Turkzadeh covered by one big blind. Potashnick folded pocket three face up, and the cards were tabled.

The flop of [Kh][10c][8h] paired both players, but kept Cristos in the lead. However, the [10d] rolled right off on the turn, giving Turkzadeh the huge lead now. Neither player reacted throughout the hand as the [8d] completed the board, giving Turkzadeh a big double up, while leaving Cristos with fumes.

Cristos was all in on the next hand, and tripled up when he flopped a full house against Potashnick and Javid Javani. Cristos is still left with just a few big blinds.

Potashnick Doubles Through Javani

Steve Potashnick has been the most inactive player of the final table so far, but his patience has just paid off, as he has secured a big double up to take over the chip lead. Potashnick got his final chips in with [Jh][Jc], and he was dominating the [8h][8d] of Javani. The flop of [Jd][6s][5c] all but ended the hand, and a deuce on the turn officially did.

Potashnick is up to over 30 million now, while Javani falls to around the same number.

Guiseppe Catalano Eliminated in 7th Place ($34,235)

Javid Javani raised to two million, and Guiseppe Catalano moved all in for 7.5 million. Once Javani got the count, he made the call.

Javani: [8s][8h]
Catalano: [As][Ks]

The hand was all but over after the flop came down [Kh][8c][2d], giving Catalano top pair, but also giving Javani a set of eights. The [9s] on the turn left Catalano drawing dead, and Javani added to his chip lead, pushing him over 40 million.

Exact Chip Counts From the Final Seven

Blinds: 400,000-800,000

Javid Javani - 33,000,000
Jim Collopy - 30,250,000
Adam Miller - 27,250,000
Steve Potashnick - 13,850,000
Amir Turkzadeh - 10,250,000
Jordan Cristos - 9,900,000
Guiseppe Catalano - 7,700,000

Tyler Dickinson Eliminated in 8th Place ($26,245)

Tyler Dickinson got his stack in from the button holding [As][Ks], and Adam Miller put him at risk from the big blind with [6c][6d]. The board ran down [Qd][8s][4h][Qc][3h], and the sixes would hold for Miller to send Dickinson to the rail.

With that, we are down to the final seven players!

Updated Chip Counts From the Final Eight

Blinds: 300,000-600,000

Javid Javani - 30,300,000
Jim Collopy - 28,300,000
Adam Miller - 13,500,000
Jordan Cristos - 13,000,000
Steve Potashnick - 11,300,000
Amir Turkzadeh - 11,000,000
Guiseppe Catalano - 10,300,000
Tyler Dickinson - 7,300,000

Jeffery Bati Eliminated in 9th Place ($19,560)

Action started with Jeffery Bati moving all in for 5.6 million from under the gun. Two seats over, Amir Turkzadeh moved all in for 8 million total. Everyone else folded, and the cards were tabled.

Bati: [Kd][Jd]
Turkzadeh: [As][Qc]

The flop was about as good as Bati could have hoped for, coming down [Jh][9d][5d]. Turkzadeh now needed a non diamond ace or queen, and while the [3c] on the turn wasn't that, the [Ah] on the river sure was.

This gets us down to the final eight players.

Slow Play So Far

There have been a handful of all in shoves, but only one time was there a call, the earlier double up we mentioned. With the blinds going to 300,000-600,000 soon, the all ins will be flying shortly.

Turkzadeh Doubles Through Bati

The action started early, beginning with Jordan Cristos getting a one hand penalty for using his phone at the table. After that settled down, the table action picked up when short stack Amir Turkzadeh moved all in from under the gun. It folded around to Jeffery Bati in the small blind, and he moved all in over the top.

Bati: [Jc][Jh]
Turkzadeh: [Ad][Qh]

The flop of [Qc][10s][3c] shot Turkzadeh into the lead, and that was good enough to give him the hand by the end.

With that is now the severe short stack.
