Almost just as we posted that we’ve gone three hours without an elimination, Eliyah Asur was sent to the rail in 5th place, as his pair and massive draw was unable to best John Germano’s pocket queens.

The hand was picked up with Germano and Asur in a leveling war on a board of {JH}{7s}{5s}, with Asur moving all-in for just under 1,000,000 chips and Germano calling to put the short stack at risk. Asur held {Js}{10s} for top pair and a flush draw and Germano had to hold as he held {Qd}{Qc}.

He did, as the {5d} paired the board on the turn and the {9h} completed the board and confirmed the knockout. Asur, who rode a roller coaster stack throughout the last two days, graciously accepted defeat and will make just under $6,000 for his BPPS final table run.

Germano, who lost the chip lead after doubling up short stack Justin Kadet during the last level, is now back leading this final table, as he’s playing just under 3,200,000.

Players are now in Level 27, where the big blind will cost 50,000 chips.
