The final 15 have left to take the first 20-minute break of the day.

Dale Phillips Eliminated in 16th Place ($8,368)

Posted 2012-06-24 GMT-7


The board read {6-Hearts}{4-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{a-Hearts} when we reached Table 445, Dale Phillips' hand had already been mucked, and {a-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{3-Spades}{2-Hearts} lay in front of Norman Chad. Yuval Bronshtein was being pushed a quarter of the pot for the high, signifying that he had a naked ace as well, while Chad pulled in three-quarters of both pots because he also had the nut-low.

Phillips is eliminated in 16th place, and will take home $8,368.

Daniel Harmetz Eliminated in 18th Place ($6,884)

Posted 2012-06-24 GMT-7


Not long after that hand in which Michael Moed was eliminated, Daniel Harmetz just found himself all in on an early street in a Stud-8 hand and facing both Tom Schneider and Timothy Frazin.

Schneider and Frazin bet down to seventh, with Schneider showing {K-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{Q-Spades}. "Kings full," said Schneider at showdown, tabling {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}, and Frazin mucked. Harmetz showed his hand quickly, but he'd missed a low and couldn't compete with Schneider's high, and he hit the rail.

On seventh, Chad check-called a bet, and Wong tabled {8-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{3-Spades} for a seven-high straight and a sixty-five low. Chad showed the {j-Hearts}, then mucked.

Michael Moed has just been eliminated in a three-way hand involving himself Daniel Harmetz and Timothy Frazin.

After each of the three contributed four bets preflop, betting through the turn left but Frazin and Moed still in the hand, but Moed's hand failed to connect and he hits the rail in 19th.
