The day began with such poker luminaries as Victor Ramdin would be eliminated after moving all-in with pocket eights and running into Devin Porter's pocket jacks. Players moving the other way on the leader board include Tex Barch, who doubled up early to claim a stake of the chip lead, Nick Schulman went home a multi-millionaire after beating up on a final table that included Allen Cunningham and Bill Gazes.
Season 5 action will last throughout the week, with the final table to be played on Thursday, Nov. 16 at 5:00 p.m. (EST). Wednesday will be a day off before the final table, as organizers have scheduled a "Father and Son" tournament that will presumably see Doyle and Todd Brunson facing off against Barry Greenstein and Joe Sebok in a tournament that will finally crown the "First Family" of poker.
