The most unexpected elimination at the final table has taken place with Jesse Jones (pictured) out in eighth place. Jones was the chip leader for most of the day but bluffed off against the set of Seth Evans to hit the rail.
Jones opened under the gun to 40,000 and Evans three-bet to 110,000 out of the small blind. Jones peeled and the flopped rolled out K♦J♥3♦.
Both players checked and Evans knocked on the 9♠ turn. Jones moved all-in for 645,000 and Evans called with 9♦9♥. Jones was in hell and drawing dead with 6♥4♥.
Evans improves his chip lead to 2,450,000 and no other final table player holds seven-figures. Raymond Speck is now the short stack after doubling up Byron Abernathy.
Abernathy flopped two pair and Speck's top pair did not improve after the money went in on the flop. Speck is playing 350,000. Full chip counts will be posted at the end of the level in 20 minutes. Abernathy sits behind 880,000.
