Dylan Linde Eliminated in 11th Place ($18,472)

[user270022] • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Dylan Linde - 11th Place
Dylan Linde - 11th Place

Dylan Linde opened preflop to 34,000 from the cutoff, Chris Hunichen announced all in from the button, and the action folded back around to Linde who called, putting himself at risk. The cards were tabled.

Linde: {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts}
Hunichen: {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}

Linde was way behind and needed help to stay alive. The dealer fanned a {k-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{8-Spades} board and Linde was out as the unofficial final table bubble boy.

Vinny Pahuja Eliminated in 12th Place ($18,472)

Vinny Pahuja - 12th Place

Chris Hunichen opened for a raise to 33,000 in middle position, and Vinny Pahuja jammed for about 400,000 in the next spot. Action folded back to Hunichen, who snap-called.

Hunichen: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Pahuja: {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}

"Oh boy," Hunichen said.

The dealer spread the flop: {8-Hearts}{9-Spades}{6-Hearts}.

"Ohhh boy," Hunichen said again, seeing his opponent now had a flush draw.

The {8-Clubs} and {6-Diamonds} paired the board harmlessly though, and Pahuja was the first player to exit today.

Patti Leads Final 12 in Event #9

Frank Patti brings the slightest of chip leads into Day 3 of Event #9: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em, as he bagged 1,197,000 last night, less than 40,000 clear of second-place Jorge Vergara's 1,159,000. What began with 1,940 entries two days ago has dwindled to just 12, and a champion will be crowned today who will walk out with $323,125 and a World Series of Poker gold bracelet.

To claim that prize, Patti and Vergara will have to contend with the likes of Vinny Pahuja, who is making his first final table appearance at the WSOP despite notching over $1.6 million in live cashes, and Chris Hunichen, who final tabled last year's Millionaire Maker on the way to over $500,000 in live cashes.

We'll begin at Level 22 today, combining for the final table after the first two eliminations. Cards will be in the air at 1 p.m. local time, so don't miss the action as we bring you all of the relevant hands right here on PokerNews.
