Event 1: $1,100 No Limit Hold'em

Savage Eliminated

After having been crippled to 11,000 in chips, Ben Savage was able to build back up to 49,000, but the comeback train was derailed by Matthew Ephraums in ugly fashion.

Savage got it all in holding {A-Spades}{8-Hearts} against Ephraums' {A-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and it looked likely that the two would split the pot. Such was not the case.

The board ran out {K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} giving Ephraums a diamond flush to send Savage to the rail.
