Jerry Odeen raised to 135,000 preflop and was called by both Robert Tanita in the small blind and Richard Crooks in the big blind.
The flop of saw Tanita check to Crooks who bet 300,000 which only Odeen called.
The turn of saw Crooks size up to 500,000 and Odeen called once more and the same action occured on the river for a sizing of 1,300,000.
Crooks turned over for a flush and a six-five low, but Odeen turned over for a better six-five low and he took down half.
The rail confused by what was happened, heard the table explain that it was a chop pot, to which one railbird responded "everyone loves a chop pot."
On a board, Stuart Easton was in the big blind and check-called every street coming from Lawrence Brandt on the button.
It was 225,000 on the flop 475,000 on the turn and 1,100,000 on the river. On this last bet, Easton snap-called, convinced that he was going to split. But he had a bad surprise.
Brandt made a full house on the river to crack Easton Kings, and he also had A-2 for a lo. He scooped the pot and almost hit the five millions of chips, before he played another hand just after this one, against Jason Adams.
Adams was all in for his last 415,000 and Brandt tried to eliminate him :
Adams yelled for high cards and the dealer put a board, which gave him the win. Adams is still surviving in this tournament like a warrior.
Benjamin Miner opened 200,000 and Jared Jaffee announced pot. It was 680,000.
When action was back on Miner he shoved 925,000 and Jaffee called.
The board ran and Jaffee held with aces. Benjamin Miner is the second player eliminated today.
Frank Salese called in first position with four players calling behind him, and Jerry Odeen checking his option in the big blind.
The flop came out and action checked to Odeen who bet 240,000. Salese raised the pot t 1,080,000 and action folded back around to Odeen who moved all in and Salese called.
The board ran out , giving no improvement to the set of tens that Salese possessed and Odeen's straight was good to eliminate Salese in 14th place.
