Two players hit the rail immediately at the start of Level 30 with Nick Singhal right in the middle of the action. Singhal came into the final table well-stacked and is now near Stephen Song for the chip lead.
The first player to exit was Dakota Anderson, who started the final table under 10 big blinds and was in immediate shove mode. Anderson moved all-in for 410,000 and Singhal called in the big blind. Singhal’s 8♠6♣ was live against the A♠K♠ of Anderson and the 4♦3♣2♣6♦10♣ board was enough to send Anderson out. He earns $14,310 for his finish.
The very next hand, Singhal doubled up Robert Ervin for Ervin’s last 555,000 in a blind versus blind battle when Ervin’s A♣4♠ held against Singhal’s Q♥4♣.
One hand later, it was Lawford Edwards’s turn to go to the payout desk. Edwards put his last 1,200,000 in the middle from early position and Singhal called on the button. The Q♣Q♠ of Singhal led the K♠10♠ of Edwards and a queen on the flop put an end to the hand. Edwards takes home $17,677.
Singhal is now playing 6,475,000 and is a few blinds shy of Song with seven players remaining.
