Dan Smith started the action by opened to 42,000 and Noah Vaillancourt raised to 93,000 from the cutoff. The blinds released and Smith re-raised to 177,000. Vaillancourt took some time to think and then called.

The flop came {2-Clubs} {7-Clubs} {4-Clubs}, Smith bet 146,000 and Vaillancourt called. But that took quite some time. The turn came {Q-Hearts} which both players eventually checked. The river brought the {10-Hearts}, Smith checked and Vaillancourt bet 238,000 after an excruciatingly long tank. Smith folded rather quickly compared to the pace of the hand and Vaillancourt chipped up significantly.

All in all the hand took about ten minutes to play out.

Joshua Field was on the button and opted to make it 40,000 to anyone who wanted to see a flop. Glen McCaffrey in the small blind then took a few moments before moving all in for about 340,000. Jamie Armstrong in the big blind then moved all in. Field quickly folded and we had a showdown.

Armstrong: {A-Clubs}{J-Spades}
McCaffrey: {10-Clubs}{k-Clubs}

A {6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{j-Hearts} board was exposed and McCaffrey was sent to the rail with 13th place's money.

Randy Green - 14th place

Randy Green managed to get all in versus Jamie Armstrong and looked to be in great shape to double up as he tabled {A-Spades}{a-Clubs}. Armstrong could only counter with {Q-Clubs}{j-Clubs} and needed some help if he wanted to knock out another player.

A {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{X-}{X-}{X-} board came out and the two jacks were enough to send the unfortunate Green home.
