Rami Boukai Eliminated in 17th Place ($15,446)

• Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante
Rami Boukai - 17th Place
Rami Boukai - 17th Place

From the hi-jack, Christian Harder opened to 22,000 only to have Rami Boukai bump it to to 76,000 from the small blind. Harder potted, and Boukai committed his last 90,000 in chips.

Harder: {k-Spades}{K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}
Boukai: {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}

The flop of {K-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{6-Hearts} saw Harder flop top set to take the lead, and when the {10-Hearts} and {7-Clubs} landed on the turn and river, Boukai was sent to the rail in 17th place for a $15,446 payday as Harder moves to 810,000 and the chip lead.

Kings for Harder

• Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante

Warren Fund opened to 33,000 from the cutoff and Christian Harder made the call from the button.

The {6-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} board was checked down to see Fund table his {Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}. However it would be Harder's {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{2-Hearts} that would see him collect the pot.

Austin Scott opened to 16,000 from early position and was met with calls from Austin Scott, Adam Junglen and Tex Barch.

With the dealer dropping a {5-Spades}{6-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} flop, Barch took the lead from the small blind with a bet of 70,000 as the action folded to Junglen who announced a pot-raise amounting to 282,000.

Barch hesitated for several moments before eventually laying his hand down while slipping to 490,000 as Junglen moves to 600,000 in chips.
