Mark Reilly raised to 50,000 from the first position and Brad Ruben potted from one seat over. The blinds went out of the way but Reilly announced he was all in and Ruben called off for his remaining bits.

Reilly: {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}
Ruben: {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{J-Spades}{3-Clubs}

Reilly turned up double-suited aces, earning a "wow" from Ruben.

The flop {6-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{Q-Spades} brought a pair of queens for Ruben, who looked for another connection to escape his elimination. The turn {A-Hearts}, however, was a hammer, already locking the pot for Reilly. "Nice hand," offered Ruben, who knew he was going to payouts.

The river {2-} was meaningless as Ruben walked away in ninth place, earning $26,648.

Rudolph Sawa was moved to Table 1 due to balancing order, and he took Ruben's former spot, left to Mark Reilly. While Reilly is the tournament leader, Sawa is also playing a big stack so things may get spicy in the upcoming hands.
