Duff Charette’s valiant run came to an end moments ago in 11th place. Earlier in the day — prior to the money bubble — he was down to less than two big blinds. From there, he found a way to grind out an 11th-place finish and $14,890 score.

Nashaat Antonious

Nashaat Antonious was under the gun and down to only 55,000. He put it in the middle and it folded to Michael McCarthy on the button. He raised to 110,000 and Duff Charette came along from the big blind. Antonious was at risk while McCarthy and Charette played it out for 110,000-chip side pot.

Flop: 8d5h2s – Charette checked. McCarthy C-bet 125,000. Charette folded. Antonious was at risk against McCarthy.

“I think you doubled up,” McCarthy laughed turning over td9c for only 10-high.

Antonious had ts5s and was ahead with a pair.

Turn and river: 9s9h

McCarthy hit a pair on the turn and trips on the river to take the lead and eliminate Antonious in 14th place. The elimination comes about eighth hours after Antonious burst the money bubble spiking an ace on the river and eliminating Sean Hampson in dramatic fashion.

James Peterson and Mirza Nagji recently got all of Peterson’s 1,250,000 chips in the middle preflop in what was the largest pot of the tournament thus far. Nagji — who owned about 1,550,000 chips — was poised to take a huge one. Unfortunately, the pair turned over the same pair — aces.

James Peterson (Seat 7) and Mirza Nagji (Seat 8) stand for the runout. Michael McCarthy (Seat 5) leaves in disgust.

A no-flush runout left for a friendly chop. On the sidelines disappointed, though, was Michael McCarthy. The preflop back and forth scared off his queens. You guessed it, a queen fell on the runout.

Mirza Nagji – 1,575,000
James Peterson – 1,295,000
