It was a span of two hands that send Dylan Honeyman to the rail. We caught the action on the river of the first pot. There was a bit over a million chips in the pot on a board of {4-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{2-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} and Honeyman was first to act. He checked his option over to Addamo who moved all in with a covering stack. Honeyman tanked for several minutes but eventually decided to release, leaving himself with right around 650,000 left.

On the next hand, Honeyman moved all in from middle position and he was called by Bart Lybaert. Everyone else folded and it was on to a showdown.

Dylan Honeyman: {5-Spades}{5-Clubs}
Bart Lybaert: {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}

The board ran out {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{7-Spades} and that would be the end of Honeyman's tournament run. Lybaert made queens and sevens to take down the pot and for his 15th place finish, Honeyman took home $31,076.

Action folded around to the blinds where Mark Sleet raised and Matthew Davidow moved all in from the big blind for right around a million. Sleet called and it was on to a showdown.

Mark Sleet: {A-}{Q-}
Matthew Davidow: {J-Hearts}{6-Hearts}

The flop came ace high with two hearts so Sleet made top pair while Davidow picked up a flush draw, and the turn was the {6-Clubs} giving more outs to Davidow, but the river was the {A-Diamonds} and that made trips for Sleet who took down the pot while Davidow was sent to the rail. He will collect $24,777 for his run.
