LAS VEGAS (AP) — Two players were eliminated Saturday after more than three hours of no-limit Texas Hold 'em at the World Series of Poker, increasing guaranteed paydays for the seven players left in the tournament.
Canadian poker player Matthew Jarvis came one card from doubling his stack through Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi but was eliminated in eighth place.
Cuong “Soi” Nguyen, the oldest finalist at 37 and the table's only amateur, was the first eliminated after gambling with an ace-king combination just before minimum bets were set to rise. He lost against Jason Senti's pocket queens.
Senti was nearly eliminated just before players took their second break of the day, but consecutive diamonds gave him a flush and brought the players far closer in chips than at the start of play.
