1st Place: Daniel Guzman ($29,184)

2nd Place: Tesfay Begazyon ($18,073)

Heads up chip counts

Daniel Guzman (left) - 6,300,000 vs. Tesfay Begazyon (right) - 1,900,000

3rd Place: Kyle Norton ($12,306)

Daniel Guzman raised preflop and Kyle Norton moved all in.  Tesfay Begazyon took a moment before folding what he later said was pocket sixes, and Daniel made the call.

Daniel [As][Qc]
Kyle [Js][Jc]

The [Kc][Jh][3h] flop gave Daniel a set, but Kyle still had a chance with a gut-shot straight.  The board ran out [5s][2d], however, to send Kyle to the rail in 3rd place.  He will collect $12,306 for his efforts.

4th Place: Sherwin "The Fox" Agard ($9,423)

Sherwin "The Fox" Agard was all in with [Th][Td] and was up against Tesfay Begazyon's [Ad][8s].  Tesfay took the lead on the [As][Ks][6c] flop, and it held through the [Kd] turn and [2s] river.  Sherwin will exit this tournament in 4th place, good for $9,423.

Kyle Norton doubles through Daniel Guzman

After Daniel Guzman raised from the small blind, Kyle Norton moved all in for 1,260,00 and Daniel made the call.

Daniel [7s][7d]
Kyle [Kd][Kc]

The flop was huge for Kyle, as it fell [Kh][3h][5c].  Daniel begged for a six to come next, but instead it was a [Qd], locking up the double-up for Kyle.  The meaningless [6d] hit the river, and Daniel was knocked down to around 4,400,000.

Tesfay Begazyon doubles through Sherwin "The Fox" Agard

Tesfay Begazyon was all in preflop holding [Qs][Qh] against Sherwin "The Fox" Agard's [Kd][Jd].  A queen in the door was good for Tesfay, but it Sherwin had outs as the flop fanned out [5d][Kc][Qd].  The [6c] turn and [Tc] river kept the set of queens in front, and Tesfay will double up.

5th Place: Dilipkumar Patel ($7,032)

A huge pot was brewing between Daniel Guzman and Dilipkumar Patel.  On a [Ks][5h][4s][Js] board, Daniel bet 1,200,000 and Dilipkumar made the call.  The river was the [2h] and Daniel put Dilipkumar all in.  After a bit of a tank, Dilipkumar made the call and revealed [4h][4d] for a set.  Amazingly, Daniel produced [Kh][Kd] for another set-over-set scenario.  Dilipkumar will earn $7,032 for his 5th place finish today.

Updated chip counts at the break

The five remaining players are now on break, and blinds will be 30,000/60,000 with a 10,000 ante after the break.  Here are estimated chip counts:

Daniel Guzman - 3,500,000
Dilipkumar Patel - 2,600,000
Sherwin "The Fox" Agard - 1,100,000
Kyle Norton - 1,050,000
Tesfay Begazyon - 450,000

6th Place: Tom Coan ($5,626)

7th place finisher Zach wasn't even done getting paid out before Tom was headed to the rail, and it happened in a flash.  He was all in on a [Kc][Qd][Qh][9s][3s] board and was up up against Daniel Guzman.  Tom had a pretty good hand with [3d][3c], but it was an unfortunate river for him as Daniel held [Qc][3h].  Tom will collect $5,626 for his 6th place finish.

7th Place: Zach Daly ($4,641)

Zach Daly is headed to the rail in 7th place, and everyone at the table is shaking their heads at how it happened.  We missed the action before the turn, but we found Zach all in on a [Kc][Qc][8h][6h] board.  It was a heads up pot with Dilipkumar Patel, and he eventually made the call.  Zach showed him the nuts with [Ks][Kd], and Dilipkumar tabled his [6s][6c], saying he almost folded.  The river was amazingly the one card that could hurt Zach, and when the [6d] hit, all he could do was head to the rail to collect this $4,641 payday.  Zach handled it like a true gentleman and said he was saving his better luck for the main event.

8th Place: Geraldine Warm ($3,657)

In a battle of the blinds, Sherwin "The Fox" Agard picked up [Ah][Ac] against Geraldine Warm's [As][Tc].  The board ran out [8d][4s][Ts][2d][Qh], and the stacks were counted down.  Sherwin was slightly outchipped, so he doubled up leaving Geraldine crippled with only a couple of big blinds.  A few hands later she got the last of her chips in with [7s][6s] but could not suck out on her opponent's [Ks][9d].  Geraldine will pick up $3,657 for her 8th place finish today.

9th Place: Christopher Amaral ($2,826)

Sherwin "The Fox" Agard open shoved and Christopher Amaral called all in for a bit less.  Christopher was ahead with [As][Jc] but pointed out that he was only roughly 60% against Sherwin's [Kc][Tc].  Christopher's odds would drop as the flop fell [Qs][3h][Kd], leaving him needing a ten or an ace.  The [5c] turn and [6h] river wouldn't fill his draw, and Christopher will exit the tournament in 9th place, good for $2,826.

10th Place: Jameson Voll ($2,053)

After a raise from Kyle Norton, Jameson Voll moved all in and Kyle made the quick call.  It was a class race as Jameson had [Js][Jc] to Kyle's [Ad][Kd].  The [5s][Ts][9c] flop was safe for Jameson, as was the [2d] turn.  Jameson asked the dealer not to river him, but alas, the [Ks] hit the river to eliminate him in 10th place, good for $2,053.
