Mark Van Keirsbilck (pictured) needed a double after being left with short by Shane Fuller but is now on the rail thanks to Dan 'Wretchy' Martin, who is at his final table peak. Martin opened under the gun for 50,000 and Van Keirsbilck shipped 200,000 in on the button. Martin called with A♦K♣ and Van Keirsbilck was live with J♥9♥. The 8♦2♦2♠Q♠3♣ board was a good one for Martin and he secured the elimination.
The following hand, Fuller opened the button to 55,000 and Jesse Jones three-bet to 135,000 in the small blind. Martin thought for a moment and shoved for about 875,00 from the big blind. His two opponents quickly folded and Martin chipped up to over 1,000,000 for the first time at the final table.
He is now in third place behind Jones and Eric Thompson. Jon Bennett is up to fourth with about 1,000,000 in his stack.
