Connie Rice (pictured) played her short stack well for most of the day but finally found herself in a spot she could not get out of. David Troutman eliminated Rice, sending the room favorite out in seventh place.
Nick Kortenber opened in the hijack and Rice called on the button. Troutman completed the big blind and the flop was J♦9♠6♠. Troutman checked and Kortenber bet 135,000. Rice shoved for 365,000 and Troutman deliberated for a moment before calling. Kortenber mucked his hand and Rice showed K♥9♦, trailing the J♥4♣ of Troutman.
The 3♦ turn and 7♦ river were air and Rice shook hands before leaving. Troutman is back up to 3,880,000, nearing his peak from a short time ago. Alvin Harris is the new short stack with 625,000.
