Our guys busted one by one starting with Padraig Parkinson in the second level and ending with Russell Thomas busting right before the nights end.
Russell's demise came at the hand of cracked aces and caused quite a stir amongst the onlookers.
The board read 7c Kh Qc 9s and Russell moved all in against Tim Reilly. Reilly took a moment and finally called with As Kd . Thomas revealed the lead with Ac Ah only to have the tragic river card turn Ks, giving Reilly the win and crippling Russell's stack.
Thomas was eliminated a few hands later and commented on the had stating, "Was the worst beat in my poker career".
Bad beats aside, Team 888poker is still cheering on our October Nine chipleader, Jesse Sylvia as he goes into day 3 with a midstack count of 209,000 chips.
Day 3 will only start with 77 remaining players of which 48 will be in the money. We wish Jesse the best of luck and hope to see him on the Eurosport LIVE TV Final Table sponsored by 888poker!
