- Level 25 (20000/40000/40000)
- Players Remaining: 24
3 tables remain and lots of pre-flop action seems to be the theme at table 1. Michael Bonita put his remaining 245k all in pre with pocket 44, and called by Mike Marder. Bonita looking concerned as he flipped his small pair, until Marder tabled his pocket 33- making Bonita a huge favorite. Bonita held up for a double up. A few hands later Sandeep Mathai raised to 90k from the cutoff and 3bet by Kevin Roster Jr. to 300k, Mathai goes all in for his close to 1.4 million, just narrowly covering Roster who calls and the 2 reveal what turns out to be a coin flip hand with Mathai slightly ahead.
Board: Q♦6♥6♠Q♠3♥ and Mathai eliminates Roster in 25th for $2278.
