Jay Feingold (Long Island, NY)
We barely had a second to put up our "back from dinner" post before we lost two players in back-to-back hands, with both players getting sent to the rail by PJ Caruso.

The first player out would be Jay Feingold and the action was picked up on the flop of [9d][10c][7c] with Feingold check-raising all-in after Caruso fired out a continuation bet of 200,000.

Feingold's all-in amount was for just over 600,000 more and Caruso would take a second to think before shaking his head up and down and saying "call".

Caruso would table [Kh][10h] and Feingold would be drawing thin as he held [10d][5d].

The turn would bring a very interesting [Kd] giving Caruso top two pair but also giving Feingold a flush draw.

He'd have nine diamonds that could save his tournament life but none of them would come on the river as it brought the [7h] and an end to Feingold's deep Card Player Poker Tour Main Event run.

Feingold flew almost completely under the radar for the majority of yesterday and bagged up one of the bigger stacks as he ran a heater through the later portions of Day 2.

He kept that up but like someone on the rail said, after having his pocket queens cracked by David Grandieri's [2s][3s] just nothing seemed to go right and he'd eventually be the next player eliminated making just over $22,000.

The action wasn't done yet because on the very next hand we'd lose...
