4:13pm--Ryan Fee eliminates Joel Micka in 2nd place

It was a button raise from Joel Micka, a re-raise from Ryan Fee, another re-raise from Micka,, a push from Fee and a call from Micka.

Micka held 4s-4c to Fee's As-Th.

Fee ran exceptionally well today, so despite the fact he bricked on the first four cards on board, there was little doubt he would spike his ace on the river.

The final board read: Ks-7c-Qc-8h-Ah

4:07pm--Micka chipping up

Well, we're still in search of a flop, but Joel Micka just proved that he doesn't need flops to narrow the gap between his stack and Ryan Fee's chip stack. He raised to 43,000, then reraised to 305,000 after Ryan Fee made it 105,000 to go. Fee wanted no part of that bet. He quickly folded.
