Bowker & Eames Progress, Nine Tables Remain

MarcC

Kyle Bowker took care of his table and John Eames just defeated Tony Cousineau to win his table.

Cousineau was short-stacked and called when Eames pushed from the button.

Cousineau; {a-Spades}{7-Diamonds}
Eames: {q-Clubs}{10-Spades}

The board ran {6-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} to make Eames a straight.

Consineau, ever the gentleman, said, "Nice catch" and shook his hand.

Just nine tables remain now.

Mercier Out, Others Advance

After a few double ups it looked like the momentum was on Jason Mercier's side, but as we walked away after one of his doubles he went bust.

A handful of other players have completed for the day and are advancing, among these are Jose Sernatos who came back from a two to one chip disadvantage is very excited to not only to be moving on to day two, but also to be on pokernews for the first time.
