Within two hands, the stack of Ian O'Hara has melted to zero and the chips went to Randy Pfeifer and Vlad Darie.
Picking up the action on the turn, Pfeifer checked out of the big blind and O'Hara bet 300 from the cutoff. Pfeifer check-raised to 700,000 and O'Hara called. On the river, Pfeifer bet 1,125,000 and O'Hara reluctantly called, then mucked when he was shown for trips jacks by Pfeifer.
Down to 23 big blinds, O'Hara faced a raise by table neighbor Vlad Darie and three-bet all in with pocket nines. Darie called with and flopped a jack, making the nine on the river a cruel formality.
O'Hara, who started the day in the lead, had to settle for a disappointing 20th place and payday of $26,070.
