13 Players Remain After First Hour of Play
After the first hour of play at, 13 players remain. Melissa Poff, Eric Rindal, Florian Sutaoo, Ed Martin, Jackson Young and Lance Dillenberg were eliminated, many of them going all in within the first few hands, a change from last night when it took them ages to eliminate the 19th player to end the day. Melissa Poff was eliminated by Bryan Devonshire after moving all in for $26,000 in chips. Melissa showed an A♣
to Bryan's A♠
. The flop, turn and river came 8♥
, leaving Bryan with the flush and Melissa with absolutely nothing. "i'm gonna go smoke my winnings," she proclaimed (althought it would take her ages to smoke $8,593 worth of anything). Jay Wright still maintains a strong lead with $252,000 in chips, but Marsha Waggoner (the only woman remaining, and PokerListings.com's horse) is still in third with around $150,00 in chips, and has yet to make a move.
