Within a few minutes from each other, Thomas Goldstein and Wai Kin Yong were eliminated on the outer tables.
On table one, five players headed to the flop and Thomas Goldstein bet to pick up three callers.. Goldstein then also bet the turn for 300,000 from the hijack and Jason Koon on the button raised it up to 800,000. That forced out Sean Dempsey and Phil Ivey, while Goldstein moved all in for some 1.7 million. Tom Dwan also folded, but Koon as table chip leader snap-called.
"Do you have outs?" Devan Tang asked before Goldstein had flipped over his cards, and the American nodded. However, the on the river was a blank and the nut straight of Koon scored a massive pot.
