Level 21 (10000/20000/20000)
Total Entries: 386

Kuzawa exits the tournament in 9th place for a $4,323 payday.

For the second hand in a row, Cameron Douglas (pictured) open-shoves preflop. The first time, no one called. But this time, Dan Lowery calls from the big blind.

Douglas - K♦K♣
Lowery - A♠Q♠

RG DOWNSTREAM Main Event (Day 2): DAVID QUEEN ELIMINATED IN 10TH PLACE ($3,300)

Level 21 (10000/20000/20000)
Total Entries: 386
Players Remaining: 9
Chip Average: 857,778

Dan Lowery opens for 45,000 from under-the-gun and Simon Webster calls from the lojack position. David Queen (pictured) moves all in for 105,000 on the button. Lowery quickly calls and Webster calls to close the action.

The dealer spreads a flop of A♠J♦7♦ and Lowery checks. Webster says, "One hundred," and tosses out a bet of 100,000. Lowery immediately announces all-in. The dealer counts it down as 559,000 and Webster says, "I think we may have the same hand."

Ultimately, Webster decides to fold and the live hands are turned up.

Dan Lowery - A♦3♦
David Queen - K♥K♦

Queen is in a hole with just two ways out--the K♠ or the K♣. The turn brings in Lowery's flush with the 2♦ and it's all over--Queen is drawing dead. The J♠ completes the board and Queen's Main Event comes to an end.

For his 10th-place finish, Queen will take home $3,300 from the prize pool.

Dan Lowery - 1,510,000
David Queen - Eliminated
