Daniel Negreanu left the tournament in 6th place. With a pocket 1010 Daniel was put on a flop with three cards over and got a quick count from Adams, who collected a couple of ladies. The turn and river did not help Daniel. Jason Koon lost most of the stack in two hands against Bill Klein and was knocked out of the tournament by Jared Jaffee. Soon Klein, as a shortstack, started KJ and got a count from Jake Schindler with A8, Schindler won the hand by drawing a pair of eights. The heads-up ended very quickly after Jaffee lost most of the stack, he started up with K-hai and got a count from A hai. On the turn, Jaffee had many outs, but not one of them did not reach him.
