The final table is only two eliminations away from being a reality thanks to the exits of Eric Johnson and Ki Kim.
David Newman put Johnson (pictured) at risk from the small blind holding A♠6♥ against the 9♦9♥ of Johnson for Johnson's last 325,000. The 10♣8♣5♣A♥6♦ board gave Newman two pair and he won the pot. Newman is playing 885,000.
A severely short-stacked Kim (pictured) was all-in for 105,000 with K♦9♦ on the button against Grant Hart's J♦5♦ from the button. The 7♣4♠2♣8♠6♣ board put a straight in play for Hart to win the hand. Hart plays 1,065,000.
In between the two all-ins, Ryan Enis raised to 75,000 in the cutoff and Adam Wandler ripped for 640,000 on the button. Enis tanked and called with A♠Q♠ to put Wandler's J♣J♥ at risk. Wandler dodged damage on the K♣4♥2♦10♦9♥ board to double up to 1,350,000. Enis is left with 400,000.
