John Vohs (Port Jefferson, NY)
Stacks are getting short since the blind and antes went up again and it's forced the play from some of the short stacks, with the most recent example leading to the elimination of John Vohs in 6th place.

The action was picked up as the table folded to Glen Thompson who would move all-in for just under 700,000 from the button.

The small blind would fold and Vohs would snap call in the big blind, tabling [Ad][10h].

He'd have his opponent dominated as Thompson had simply been trying to take down the valuable blinds and antes, holding [10c][8c].

The flop came down [6s][3s][5c] keeping Vohs' Ace high in the lead, but the [7c] turn card added a bit of a sweat, as Thompson now had straight and flush draws to score a knockout with one card to come.

The [4h] would fall on the river and there would be a momentary pause from everyone around the tournament area as they observed the board, eventually figuring out that Thompson held the top end of the straight, giving him a better than "play the board" hand.

Vows would hate the way he was knocked out, but now where he was as he made numerous pay jumps while working a short stack to near perfection since the dinner break, cashing for just under $6,000, the biggest tournament score of his career.

As it stands, Thompson, Robert Campion and Joe Kosko are all under the chip average, with Chris Leong sitting just above that number and Peter Tripp controlling just under half the remaining chips in play.
