Nenad Medic, who won this very event back in 2008 for $794,112, began the day as one of the shorter stacks and had his work cut out for him. In a recent hand, Medic raised from the hijack only to have Owen Crowe reraise from the small blind. Medic called off his remaining chips and discovered he was in bad shape.
Medic's best hope to stay alive was to catch a ten, but the flop did not deliver. The turn left Medic drawing dead as the was put out on the river. Medic was eliminated from the tournament in 25th place.
