Total Entrants: 378
Players remaining: 15
Chip Average: 504,000

Rex Smith (pictured) became the sole casualty of a three-way all in with Mo Nammari and Mark Burford.  Nammari limped in and Smith shoved all-in. Mark Burford re-shoved for more and Nammari called to put both players at risk.

Nammari - 7♥7♦
Burford - A♠Q♦
Smith - A♦9♥

Smith found himself in last place going to the flop, which came T♠6♥3♣. The turn K♦ brought Burford a gutshot but left Smith dead to a nine. The river J♦ filled Burford's straight and ended Smith's Main Event run. Burford would collect the main pot and Nammari would take the side pot.

For his performance, Smith has earned $2,174.
