We are now hand-for-hand on the money bubble following John Moore's (pictured) elimination by defending Route 66 champion Larry Trimble. Trimble opened from under-the-gun to 15,000 and Moore called from the big blind.
The flop came Q♣Q♦9♦, and Moore moved all in for his last 41,000.
"I have to call you," Trimble said, turning over A♥Q♠. Moore shook his head and tabled 9♥8♣. Only running nines or running jack-ten would save Moore from elimination.
The board ran out 6♦4♠ and Moore is the first to hit the rail in Day 2.
Larry Trimble - 258,000
John Moore - Eliminated
