Michael Cisco and Noemi Saleh returned from dinner break both under 20 big blinds and were in a battle for a pay jump to fourth place. Both players put their tournament lives on the line during the start of the new level and it was Cisco who ran out of time first.
Aiman Abbassi limped under the gun and Zhaoxing Wang did the same on the button. Cisco checked his big blind and the flop came out J♥7♥6♠. Cisco went all-in for 210,00 and Abbassi called. Wang folded and Cisco’s 9♦6♥ would have to come from behind against Abassi’s Q♥J♦. The K♦ turn and 3♠ river were no help and Abbassi knocked out Cisco.
Abbassi is the chip leader with 1,450,000, putting him narrowly in front of James Lillis. Saleh is still grinding away with 250,000.
