After the elimination of Zeke Springer and Frank Wallace, all eyes were on the new short stack at the Final Table, Jesse Mason.

Mason was cut down to 155,000 and moved all-in for less from the button, after Ryan Chua raised to 200,000 from early position.

Both Robert Oswald and Sean Casey called in the blinds.

Mason now had a chance to quadruple up, as four players saw a flop of {Kh}{Jc}{8d}.

Oswald would then open shove, giving Mason some protection as the remaining players folded.

Not that Mason needed any protection, as he held {Kc}{8c} for two pair, besting Oswald’s {Ks}{Qh}.

Mason was poised to move up close to the 1,000,000 chip mark until the {Jh} came on the turn, counterfeiting his two pair, as Oswald’s kicker now played and Mason was looking for a miracle river to save his tournament life.

It wouldn’t come as the {6s} fell and the former Eastern Poker Tour 36K Champion would be eliminated in 7th place, for his second consecutive deep run in a bar league championship.

Players are now on a quick 10 minute break and the chip counts will be posted for the remaining six players.
