Bastian Fischer (7th) and John Cleaver (6th) Eliminated

Event 3: $500 + $60 No Limit

We've just had two eliminations in the span of ten minutes.

Bastian Fischer was down to about 13 big blinds and moved all in with A-4 suited. Unfortunately, chipleader Matthew Klein called with 10-10, and Fischer's best hope was to catch an ace -- until the flop came 10-9-3. Klein had a set, and Fischer needed a runner-runner miracle that didn't come.

Bastian Fischer is eliminated in 7th place, earning $7,146. Meanwhile, the rich get richer as Matthew Klein is just a few chips shy of the 2 million mark.

A few hands later, John Cleaver was short-stacked and all in from the big blind with K-9 against Cuong Phung on the button with Q-10. Phung caught a queen on the flop to win the pot and eliminate Cleaver in 6th place. Cleaver earned $8,864.
