Nearly 12 hours ago Greg Hobson led the returning 117 players with the biggest stack. He managed to ride that stack all the way to the final two tables, but his run just came to an end in 11th place.
It happened when Keven Stammen opened for 18,000 from the cutoff and then called when Hobson moved all in from the button for approximately 100,000.
"Two outs," Hobson pointed out upon seeing he his pair was dominated. The flop gave him some runner-runner straight possibilities, but the turn quickly dashed those hopes. It was down to a nine for Hobson, but it wasn't in the cards as the peeled off.
As the start-of-the-day chip leader Hobson no doubt had dreams of a gold bracelet, but he'll have to settle for a $15,643 consolation prize instead.
