The river is the 10 and Baker moves all in. Bush has 425,000 behind and after a few minutes, calls all in turning over QJ. Baker taps the table and mucks his hand. Bush now has over 1.1 million and Baker takes a hit down to little under 600,000.

 

Billy Pilossoph Doubles Up

In a limped pot between the blinds and a flop of K65, Billy Pilossoph bets 35,000 and David Baker puts him all in. Pilossoph reluctantly calls showing 106 but he is ahead of Bakers 75. The turn and river come 2A and Pilossoph doubles to around 450,000.

 

Steven Miller Eliminated in 4th Place ($65,995)

Steven Miller moves all in for his last 120,000 or so and David Baker insta calls having looked at only one card, an ace. Miller reveals J6 but is crushed when Baker reveals his other card, another ace for AA. The board rolls out 10971010 and Miller is eliminated in 4th place, earning $65,995.

Miller came into the day second to last in chips, and at one point during the money bubble was down to exactly one big blind. He may have been pretty card dead four handed, but his comeback today was a great accomplishment.

Young Guns Picking On Their Elders

Now it seems as if David Baker and Chris Bush are taking turns picking up the blinds and antes of Steven Miller and Billy Pilossoph. It costs these guys 46,000 to play each four-handed round, and their stacks are dwindling fast. Miller is going to need to make a move soon if he wants to stay in contention.

 

Trading Chips

The players are currently playing very cautiously. Hands are taking upwards of 5 minutes each and it seems as though the only player losing chips is Steven Miller. He now has just under 220,000.
