A big hand just went down that resulted in the eliminations of Richard Sklar and John Monnette.
It happened when the two engaged in a raising war with George Danzer that resulted in Sklar getting all in for 88,000. Danzer then bet fourth, Monnette called, and the action repeated itself on fifth. Danzer bet once again on sixth and Monnette called off for his last 12,000.

Danzer tabled kings full of nines, which beat Sklar, who failed to make a low. Monnette squeezed out his last card, and when he didn't like what he saw he mucked.
"I just wanted to say hi to all the players at the Village Club Card Room in San Diego," Sklar told us as his final words.
The double elimination means the remaining seven players will combine to the final table over at the ESPN main stage. There will be a short break for this to occur. We'll have the new seat draw and updated counts for you shortly.
