Brian Dewey was eliminated in a confrontation with chip leader Jesse Jones. Dewey held ace-queen against Jones's pocket threes. The threes held and Dewey goes out in 25th place.
Shortly after, Brian Watts opens the pot for 25,000 and gets called by Kristian Olsen and Andrew Ziskin in the blinds.
The flop comes 9♥8♦3♥. Both blinds check and Watts goes all in for a little under 200,000. Olsen calls and Ziskin folds.
Brian Watts - T♥T♦
Kristian Olsen - 9♠9♣
Watts's overpair is in jail against Olsen's set of nines. He'll need a ten or runner-runner straight to win. The turn brings the 6♠. Watts can only win with a ten or a seven on the river. The river is the 4♦, giving Olsen the pot.
When Olsen's stack is counted down, she has 200,000 exactly, eliminating Watts in 24th place.
Kristian Olsen - 432,000
Brian Watts - Out
