Brian Ray

With the flop reading KdJs7d, Brian Ray and Tom Nguyen checked from early position and James Rumptz bet 55,000. Ray check-raised all in for 365,000 and Nguyen called. Rumptz thought for a minute before he folded.

Nguyen: JdJh
Ray: KhQd

Ray flopped top pair but Nguyen was ahead with middle pair of jacks. The board finished 5d turn and Ts river and Ray was eliminated in 19th place.

Tom Nguyen – 1,700,000 (68 bb)
Brian Ray – Eliminated in 19th Place ($6,100)

While that hand was going down, Clayton Mullinax was eliminated in 18th place to leave the field one knockout away from a two-table redraw.
