$2500 + $200 Double Play NL Championship
Just back from break and we lose back to back players on table 2. First Lee Kirsch (Cold Spring Harbor, NY) runs into pocket aces, then it's defending champion Alex Queen (Bethlehem, PA) who hits the rail.
Queen puts his last 110k all in with AK against the JJ of Yury Parad (Chicago, IL), but can't connect and is out in 47th place. "We'll see you next time," he says while heading out of the Poker Room.
46 players remain and play is now hand-for-hand as we're one spot from the money.
