Almost a full 45 minutes after the previous elimination John Juanda and Kenny Tran finished a back and forth battle. Tran was short-stacked several times but never gave up. Tran scored a key double holding by rivering trips.
The last hand saw Tran raising to 18,000 on the button and Juanda went all in. Tran had 100,000 behind and put it in holding . Juanda tabled and watched his lead disappear when the flop came . The turn fell and the river came , delivering the final knockout of the evening and sending Juanda to Day 2.
