In the previous level, Randall Emmett joked in table chat who he considered as a professional player and fish. The American producer then claimed he had already engraved his name into the trophy and that the other players at the table could come outside and take a picture with it. One of them may well do that in a few days from now, but Emmett has been among the early casualties in the second level of the day.
Danny Tang and famous golfer Sergio Garcia also joined Emmett on the rail. Garcia ran into a set of David Yan twice in quick succession, first with aces versus queens on a queen-high flop and then with versus pocket tens when Yan immediately flopped another ten.
