All three players checked fourth street and Alexander Krapivinsky led out on fifth. Bryn Kenney folded and Adam Friedman tagged along. Friedman took over the betting on sixth and both checked seventh. Friedman tabled a pair of sevens with no low and Krapivinsky announced that it was good as he mucked his cards.

The next hand Krapivinsky got the rest of his chips in with {A-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{J-Spades} against Friedman's {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}. Krapivinsky failed to improve once again and he was sent packing in 11th.

Phil Ivey {x-}{x-} / {a-Spades}{10-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{9-Spades} / {x-}

After winning a pot, Phil Ivey was three-handed with Adam Friedman and John Monnette on fourth street. The action checked to Monnette who bet, and both Friedman and Ivey called. Monnette paired on fifth, and led out. Only Ivey called.

On sixth, Monnette led out again, and Ivey called. Monnette fired one more bet on seventh street, and Ivey was none too happy. He cut out enough pink T5,000 chips to make the call, then slammed them back onto his stack. He did this again, and then finally tossed them forwards.

Monnette turned over {q-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{6-Hearts} for a straight and an eighty-seven low, and Ivey mucked.
