Mark Dickstein was all in for his last 29,000 and up against Michelle Lousen, Anthony Zinno, and Curtis Phelps.

Lousen went all in for her last 8,000 on fourth street and both Zinno and Phelps called. Zinno bet on both fifth and was called by Phelps, creating a side pot. Phelps folded to a bet on sixth.

Zinno turned over {8-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{3-Hearts} for an A-2-3-4-7 that was good enough to win the pot and eliminate both Lousen and Day 1 chip leader Dickstein.

"Do you ever miss, Anthony," Phelps asked.

"Congratulations on the bracelet," tablemate Joe McKeehen told Zinno in jest.

The action was picked up on sixth street with Much all-in and at-risk and Kennedy having four-bet Hsiung. That prompted Constantine to fold and Hsiung called.

Seventh street saw a single bet from Kennedy and a call from Hsiung. The cards were tabled for the side pot and Kennedy won the high with two pair, kings and tens, while Hsiung took the low with an eight-seven-six-four-ace.

The main pot saw Kennedy awarded the high again with his two pair, only this time Much took the low with a six-five-trey-deuce-ace and survived his all-in.

Limit Hold'em

Curtis Phelps from early position and Robert Ford from the big blind went heads-up to the turn with the board showing {4-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{4-Spades}{6-Clubs}. Phelps bet and Ford called, leaving himself about 100,000 behind.

The river came the {3-Clubs}, Ford checked and Phelps put in a bet for most of Ford's remaining chips. "I had spades. I missed," Ford said, flashing the {9-Spades} and throwing his cards to the muck.
