$2.5k Pot-Limit Omaha - Flowers Wilted (5th), Boatman Rocked (4th)
Dallas Flowers was bounced in fifth place to begin the past hour.
He pushed in with A♥ Q♠ J♥ 9♦ facing a Jeff Kimber raise and Kimber called with A♣ K♠ Q♥ 3♥.
A king on the turn left Flowers drawing only to a chop and he grabbed $49,387 in prize money when that didn't happen.
The pot actually moved Kimber into a dead heat for the lead with J.C. Tran.
Jean-Philippe Leandri was not far off the pace but Ross Boatman's ship continued to sink until he said goodbye in fourth place.
Boatman limped into Tran's big blind from the small, but check-raised all in on an 8♦ 3♥ 2♠ flop.
Tran made the easy call with Q♥ 9♠ 8♠ 3♠ and although Boatman's A♦ T♣ 9♥ 8♣ was behind, he picked up aces up on the A♠ turn to take the lead.
Unfortunately for Ross, the spade gave Tran a flush draw and the 3♠ river completed it.
Boatman had the chip lead to start the day, but will have to settle for $66,936 and a fourth place finish as play moves three-handed with Tran in charge.
