11:15pm--Rommer Prado eliminated 10th place ($18,320)

The final table of nine is set, Rommer Prado was just beat in a dirty, dirty way. He pushed all in for nearly 120,000. Karl Hevoy called with Q-J. Prado asked in Spanish, "How can you call with that?" The board ran out [10C]-[10S]-2♥-7♦-Q♦. The room exploded and our final table players celebrated around Prado's grief. Prado finishes 10th for $18,320.


11:00pm-- Alejandro Bonanata eliminated in 11th place ($18,320)

Making his last stand withK♦-[10H], Alejandro Bonanata moved all in from middle position only to run smack into Karl Hevroy's pocket aces. Though the K♠-J♠-8♦ flop paired him up, the A♥ on the turn made Hevroy a set, leaving him drawing only to a queen. The river came the 2♠, though and Bonanata's tournament came to an end. He'll go home with $18,320 as well as the autographed fossil he earned yesterday by knocking out Greg Raymer.


10:45pm--Octavio Bernardini eliminated in 12th place ($18,320)

As it looks right now, there's no stopping Karl Hevroy, who just added even more to his massive stack by taking out Octavio Bernardini. Their money went in a flop of Q♣-[10S]-7♠, each having hit a piece of it-- Bernardini with A♥-[10D] for middle pair and Hevroy the A♣-Q♦ for top pair. There was no help for Bernardini when a deuce hit the turn and an eight the river, leaving him to hit the rail.

10:30pm-- Blinds up!

The blinds have climbed up once more, with our final twelve playing 6,000/12,000 with a 1,000 ante.
