DiBernardi was live but couldn’t find a save on the board to exit in seventh place.

Before the dust even settled, we lost two players at the final table in the first two hands. Five-time WSOP Circuit champ Loni Harwood was out of her seat and at the payout desk before we could blink then Mark Scacewater was all in on the next hand.
Steven Richardson had him at risk while some were still stacking their chips.
Scacewater needed to catch to stay in the game but missed the flop. The turn gave him spade outs with his over cards but he blanked the river to exit in ninth place.
Steven Richardson – 744,000 (62 bb) Mark Scacewater – Eliminated in 9th Place ($4,504) Loni Harwood – Eliminated in 10th Place ($3,676)
