AJ Johnston eliminated in 6th place ($1,812)

We missed the hand but according to Julie Anna Cornelius, Johnston was eliminated when he shoved his short stack on the button with Ax4x and was called by Nam Phan in the small blind with 4x4x. The case 4 hit the flop, and Johnston would need running aces to survive. An ace came on the turn but it a blank hit the river and Johnston finishes in 6th place for $1,812.

Nam Phan - 675,000

AJ Johnston - Eliminated

Nick Burris doubles up

Action folds to Nam Phan in the small blind and he shoves for 860,000. Nick Burris in the big blind calls all-in for less and the hands are turned up.

Burris - A♥3♦

Phan - 6♦6♠

The board comes in Burris's favor, A♠5♠3♥, and Phan will need running straight cards or one of the two remaining sixes to knock out Burris. The turn brings the K♥, and the river is the J♣, and Burris doubles through.

Nick Burris - 730,000

Nam Phan - 520,000

Sipe scores a double elimination

We missed the hand, but came to the table as the pot was pushed to Tim Sipe, showing 8x8x for a set of eights.  Brandon Cummins was all in with JxTx and a straight draw, while Darrell Cranmore was all in with Q♦9♦ for top pair, on an 8x9x4x flop. 

Sipe's set of eights held against both opponents and he is now the overwhelming chip leader.

Cranmore exits the tournament in 8th place and receives $1,269 for his performance. Brandon Cummins finishes in 7th place and receives $1,532 for his efforts.

Tim Sipe - 1,400,000

Rich Clark eliminated in 9th place ($1,092)

Level 21 - 15,000 / 30,000 / 3,000

Julie Anna Cornelius opens the pot for 65,000 in the cutoff and Nam Phan calls on the button. Brandon Cummins folds the small blind and Rich Clark goes all in for 10,000 more from the big blind. Both Cornelius and Phan call and we see a flop of J♣9♠3♣.

Cornelius bets 80,000 and Phan folds. With Clark all-in, the hands are turned up.

Cornelius - K♣J♠

Clark - K♥T♣

Cornelius has top pair and Clark has a gutshot straight draw. But a queen was not in the cards as the turn brought the 7♠ and the 3♦ fell on the river to end Clark's tournament. He is eliminated in 9th place and receives $1,092 for his performance.

Julie Anna Cornelius - 650,000
