Ryan Sponaugle moved in under the gun and action folded around to Jim Rumptz in the big blind, who called.

Ryan – AJ

Jim – KK

The flop brought a Jack for Ryan, but he got no more help and was eliminated in 6th place ($5,179).  He was dead last of the 41 players returning today, so he made quite a run, coming up just two spots short of the 4th place finish he predicted earlier today.  He still plans to win the Main Event next week.

Jim Rumptz is the first player to cross the 1 million chip mark and now holds the chip lead.
