With the elimination of William Priest (at the hands of Jonathan Aguiar) we are at 24 players and finished for the night. A full wrap-up and chip count coming.

10:39pm: Flop nuts, lose to quads
Flopping the nuts is a cause for celebration. It rarely happens. If your opponent happens to hit a good piece of the board, you're most likely getting paid off in a big way. You might even double up. At least that's what Ronald McGinnity had to be thinking when he looked down at K♥T♠ and the flop came down Q♠J♥9♠.

The turn was the J♦ and McGinnity got the rest of his stack in the middle vs. Jordan Morgan, who had turned trips with K♣J♠. Sure he had outs, but McGinnity was looking good with one to come.

It just had to be the J♣. Ouuuuuuuuch.

Morgan, channelling his screen name of "iMsoLucky0," scooped up the pot and McGinnity hit the rail in 26th place. One more elimination before we close the book on Day 3.

McGinnity ships his stack to Morgan

10:35pm: Last level of the night?
Heck, we don't know.

But, we're down to 26 players. That means two more eliminations and we're off to bed.

Our current chip leader, Vanessa Selbst, is sitting 2,435,000 in chips. Our advice to you is to not mess around with her for the rest of the night, because she's proven she'll mess right back (whatever that means).
