It is now official.
Of the 118 players that entered the 7PM Survivor tournament, 12 will get paid. Each will collect a total of $954. We presently have 53 players left battling it out on the felt, so there will have to be 41 more eliminations to get there.
Speaking of eliminations, there was almost one just a few minutes ago on table 23. However, it turned out it was not time for Richard Normandin to leave, and so we stay at 53 players for now.
The hand started as Guy Lebrun and Nabil Nahoul limped in side-by-side from early position for 1,600. Richard only had 3 big blinds left, and was forced to shove from mid-position, and Guy and Nabil called.
The flop came down , and Guy checked UTG. All it took was a 2,000 chip bet to chase him away, and now it was only Richard vs. Nabil. Both players flipped over their cards, with Nabil out ahead.
Richard hung on however, catching his Jack on the river. He “Survives” on for a little longer…
