David Vamplew

It was the very first hand that David Vamplew all in for just under eight blinds with A♠J♥ and getting called by Ricardo Chauriye who held A♦5♦. A flop of Q♠K♦T♦ made Broadway for Vamplew, but the J♦ on the turn made a flush for Chauriye, ending the Scottish pro's day early in 32nd for $4,760.

Alejandro Cabello of Peru next fell in 31st, having made the pay jump. Cabello committed his chips with Q♣Q♠ against Chadi Moustapha's J♣J♦, but the J♥ fell among the community cards to send Cabello to the cashier's desk.

The Chilean Mauricio Cottin followed him in 30th to claim the same prize after his 4♠4♥ failed to hold against Chauriye's A♥Q♥ following a preflop push. Then Juan Diego Marsano of Peru went out in 29th, getting all in following a J♣8♠Q♥ flop with K♦T♥ for a straight draw against Mario Alejandro's Q♣T♥ for top pair, then watching the board complete with a couple of blanks.

Then after Level 19 had begun and they crossed the day's half-hour mark, Holden Filartiga of Paraguay became the 28th-place finisher. Each of those latter four players each collected $5,580 for their efforts.

Meanwhile start-of-day leader Andres Herrera continues to lead, with Chauriye charging after picking off a couple of those short stacks.
