Robbie Verspui opened to 25,000 UTG and Andrew Badecker made it 57,000 from UTG+1, it was passed Erik Cajelais in the hijack and he made it 125,000 to go. But then if that wasn't enough, Jon Spinks in the small blind rechecked his cards before moving all in for 550,000 in total. Verspui and Badecker quickly got out of the way and Cajelais tanked for about two minutes before folding face up.
Spinks almost nodded at this but kept his hand firmly face down as it went into the muck
Only two hands into our final table, David Pham is out.
The first hand of the table, Pham in early position raised to 32,000 preflop. Robbie Verspui called and Vitaly Lunkin re-raised to 100,000. Pham counted out his chips and then four bet to 235,000. Lunkin didn't think very long before he re-raised all in. Pham folded and was down to 303,000
The very next hand, Robbie Verspui raised to 32,000 from early position, Erik Cajelais re-raised to 75,000 from the button and David Pham went all in for his remaining stack of 301,000. Verspui folded and Cajelais quickly made the call with . Pham showed and they were off to the races.
The board ran out with no help for Pham, and almost as soon as he started the final table, he was finished with it. Cajelais moved over the 1,000,000 chip mark after that hand
Andrew Pantling had just been moved across tables and Dan Kelly made it 25,000 from early position, Robbie Verspui called from the button and Dan Makowsky made the call in the small blind before Pantling moved all in for just under 200,000.
Kelly quickly mucked, Verspui also thought about it but then folded but most surprisingly of all, Makowsky snap-called.
The flop couldn't really have been more decisive coming and Pantling packed his bags as the turn and river sent him home.
