Photos: Rick Salomon Busts 10th & Ashton Griffin Busts 9th
Level 18: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
The final 10 players combined to a single table and kept on playing. In Hand #4, after a flop of K33, Rick Salomon (center, standing) three-bet all in with AK (two pair, kings and threes). But Erik Seidel (top left) called with A3 for trip threes, and it held up to win the pot. Rick Salomon was eliminated in 10th place.
In Hand #21, Justin Bonomo (center, seated) moved all in on the turn with the board showing K834, and Ashton Griffin (standing, foreground left) tanked for a long time before calling with JJ. But Bonomo turned over K8 for a pair of kings, and it held up to eliminate Ashton Griffin in ninth place. Griffin receives a fist bump from Randy Dorfman as he leaves.
