Jonathan Rosenthal Eliminated in 9th Place ($7,150)


Jonathan Rosenthal moved all in from early position, and action folded around to Wayne Perry in the small blind. Not realizing that a player was all in, Perry tossed in a chip to complete the small blind. After the dealer and other players told him there was a player who was all in, Perry attempted to muck his hand, folding his cards short of the muck so that they were easily retrievable.

At this point, multiple players at the table told everyone to stop so that the floor could come over and make a ruling.  Since Perry had tossed in a chip to signify a call, and since his cards were clearly retrievable, he was bound to the all in bet, and the players showed their cards.

Rosenthal: [7s][7h]
Perry: [Qs][5s]

The flop of [As][6c][2s] gave Perry a flush draw, and drew ooh's and aah's from the table. The turn [4c] brought no help, but the [4s] on the river changed everything, giving Perry a winning flush, and an unlikely knockout.


Kishor Deai Eliminated in 10th Place ($5,340)


Ahmad Hooshmand started the action by moving all in from under the gun for about four million. Everyone folded around to the big blind, Kishor Desai, who called all in for less.

Hooshmand: [Qs][Qd] 
Desai: [Ah][Kc] 

The board ran down [4h][3c][4d][Js][5c], and Hooshmand scored the knockout to up his stack to over seven million. 

Unofficial Final Table Photos and Chip Counts

Mats Gavatin looked to be in great shape to score a much needed double up when he got it in preflop holding pocket kings to the [Kc][Jc] of Tri Nguyen. However, the flop brought two clubs, and despite his great lead at the start, Gavatin was drawing dead when the flush came in on the turn.

This leaves us with our final ten players, and you can view those players, with their updated chip counts, below. Stay tuned to find out who takes home the title!

Seat 1: Victor Kruglov - 13,500,000

O'Neill Leads as the Final Table Looms

We have now lost Mark Kawanaga in 14th place, Erdal Artek in 13th place, and new chip leader Sean O'Neill has just dispatched Ron Haeri in 12th place. O'Neill has been on a tear since we got down to the final two tables, as he now leads with a stack of over 18 million, Victor Krugolov is in second with 11.5 million, and Tri Nguyen is in third with just over 11 million himself.

When we lose one more player, we will combine to the final 10 players at one table. We will post photos and updated counts for all the players remaining then.
