We're down to 15 players. Everyone is still gunning for the top prize of $28,710.
The 16th through 18th place finishers all took home $1,211. Here are their stories:
Leroy Bauman (pictured) found himself super short with 16 players left. He was down to his last 34,000 chips, which was equivalent to just over two big blinds. Bauman went all in with the QcJh and got a quick call from Amy Hallowell in the big blind. Hallowell was priced in to call with her 9d6d. The board ran out 8s9c5c 5d 3h and Bauman was sent to the rail in 16th place.
Alexander Hill put the last of his stack in with pocket 7s. An opponent called him with king-jack and hit two jacks on the flop. The turn nor river brought a seven and Hill was out in 17th place.
Larry Conners' run at the title has also come to an end. We missed the hand that sent him to the rail but Conners was outed in 18th place.
