They're playing fast and furious today at Ameristar St Charles. Hand-for-hand play lasted one hand before Clay Wideman (pictured) busted Robb Davis to pop the bubble.
The remaining 45 players are guaranteed at least $686 as we have reached the money stage of the tournament here in St. Charles, Missouri. Robb Davis came into the day with the sixth largest stack of the remaining 55 players, but he took a big hit early on and found himself short. He pushed his last 60,000 chips into the middle from early position from the 1 seat. Action folded around to Clay Wideman in the 8 seat who made the quick call with pocket aces. Davis flipped over pocket eights and was in need of one of the two remaining eights in the deck to stay alive. The flop and turn came 5-10-J-9, giving Davis an open-ended straight draw. Alas, another ace came on the river and Davis was sent to the rail in 46th place.
