Justin Bonomo raised from under the gun and found a call from Alexandre Luneau in the big blind. Luneau drew two cards on the first draw while Bonomo opted for one. Luneau checked, Bonomo bet, and Luneau called to see the second draw.
Both took one on the second draw and both checked their option. They each took one card on the final draw and Luneau checked. Bonomo bet out and Luneau flung out a call. Bonomo showed that he paired nines and Luneau rolled over for a winning queen-low. Luneau now has 43,000 in chips while Bonomo has fallen to 207,000.
Sergey Rybachenko raised from the cutoff and Mike Peltekci made it three bets from the button. The blinds folded and Rybachenko called. The Russian stood pat while Peltekci drew two new cards. Rybachenko fired out a bet and Peltekci called all in for his last 500.
Rybachenko stood pat on all three draws while Peltekci took two on the second draw and one on the third. Rybachenko fanned a pat and Peltekci could not beat it. His hand was mucked before we got the chance to see it and the start-of-day chip leader was eliminated from play.
Rybachenko now has 268,000 in chips.
Picking up with the action during the first draw we found Larry Wright all in and at risk for his last 4,000 against Jason Mercier and Michael Chow.
Chow and Mercier each drew one card while Wright took two. Both active players checked and drew one on the next street. Wright took one as well. Mercier led on the next betting round and Chow called. Mercier stood pat while Chow and Wright each took one.
On the final betting round, Mercier bet and Chow called. Mercier fanned which prompted Chow to muck his hand. Wright tabled a and was eliminated from play. Mercier picked up the pot and now has 188,000.
