All remaining 15 players are now on their final 20-minute break.
Galen Hall was the preflop raiser and got three callers in Martins Adeniya, Matthew Humphrey and Kevin Saul in the big blind.
Saul checked the flop, Hall bet 22,000 and Adeniya raised the pot for 99,000. Humphrey and Saul both mucked their cards and Hall raised to put Adeniya at risk, who quickly called.
Top set for Hall and the flush draw for Adeniya. After the turn, the Brit had one jack as out remaining in order to improve, and the river sent him to the rail in 16th place.
Gabriel Nassif raised to 12,000 and got three callers including Erick Lindgren and Brandon Paster in the blinds. After the flop, Lindgren bet 18,000 out of the small blind and only Paster called to see the turn. Lindgren led again, this time for 45,000. Paster raised to 110,000 and Lindgren moved all in. Call.
Sweat for both players as the split pot was not set in stone yet. It was once the river completed the board.
Erick Lindgren - or "Erick Limpgren", as his tablemates have started to call him - limped in and Michael Wang raised pot sitting one to Lindgren's left. It was folded back to Lindgren, who eyed Wang's stack and made the call. The flop came and Lindgren bet the size of the pot, which was good enough to set Wang all-in.
"That's a good sign," Lindgren said when Wang didn't call right away.
Wang eventually made the call and tabled for a pair of jacks. Lindgren had an overpair with , good enough to win the pot when the turn and river came . Wang was eliminated in 17th place and Lindgren's stack got a bit healthier in the process.
We saw the flop and the player in the big blind checked. Kevin Saul as initial preflop raiser made it 22,000 and Galen Hall raised it up to 75,000. The player in the big blind folded and after some consideration, Saul raised pot. Hall called rather quickly, and the duo created yet another bit pot.
The turn immediately completed the flush for Hall. Saul needed to pair the board in order to not experience another setback. It wasn't meant to be, as the river was a blank.
Kevin Saul raised to 16,000 and one seat over, Galen Hall popped it up to 55,000. Saul inquired about his total stack, then glimpsed at his own. "If I lost that pot, I am still at more than 500,000 chips," he said. Hall replied, "That is a very elusive club, indeed." Saul ended up calling to see a flop of .
Hall called all in for 63,000 and Saul immediately asked him whether or not he had hit the flop. "Yeah," Hall said.
"Well, I didn't," responded Saul.
The on the turn gave Saul a straight and Hall the nut flush; the river was already meaningless. "I'm gonna give you all those yellow chips," Saul said before shipping over three stacks of 20xT1000 chips.
Kevin Saul opened for 20,000 from late position and Norman Silverman popped it to 51,000 from out of the blinds. Saul made the call and the flop came . Silverman moved all-in and Saul snap-called with for a flopped set of jacks. Silverman had and would pick up a straight on the turn. The on the river would pair the board and give Saul a full house.
A disappointed Silverman slapped the table as he was eliminated in 18th place, a result of Saul's full house. Saul now has a commanding chip lead with 625,000 in chips.
A short-stacked Tyler McDonald was all-in preflop and Morgan Popham looked him up.
On the board, Popham made aces and tens to scoop the pot and McDonald hit the rail in 19th place. We now have another redraw for the last two tables.
