With a board reading [8c][js][10c], Mark Lieberman is all in holding [qh][qd] against Andrew Gileno holding [kc][jc].

The [6s] turn was safe for Lieberman, but the [7c] on the river gave Gileno the flush, and Lieberman was eliminated one short of the final table. 

Raj Patel Eliminated in 12th Place ($4,947)

Steven Tabb raised to 17,000 in the cutoff and Raj Patel shoved all in on the button.  Tabb asked the dealer to pull in the 17,000, and asked for a remaining count.  Upon hearing the total he would need to call, (94,000) Tabb thought for a moment before he eventually called.

Patel was ahead holding [8s][8c] against Tabb's [qh][jh].  But Tabb had turned a flush draw, and hit a jack on the river to eliminate Patel in 12th place.

We are now on the final table bubble and the remaining ten players are now hand for hand.

On a board reading [5h][8h][kc][4s], Solomon Yi is all in and has been called by Steven Tabb.

Tabb turns over [ad][kd] for a pair of kings.  But Yi turned the straight holding [7c][6s].  The [6d] came on the river.

Yi is now sitting with 830,000 and Tabb with 1,200,000.
