With the final table in sight for our remaining players, the bigger stacks have been punishing their weakened opponents, culling the short stacks from the field one by one.
Pakinai Lisawad was the latest to lose it all, after getting it all-in on a flop. When Shawn Silber bet the pot on the flop, forcing Lisawad to a decision for his tournament life, he made the call holding for top pair and an open-ended straight draw.
Silber's for top two pair put him out in front, and when the dropped on the river, he stood in celebration.
"I think you win," said Lisawad graciously, before making his way to the payout desk in 20th place, while the rest of his chips were sent to Silber.
