We came across a big hand over at Table 17 when Jeremy Ausmus and an unknown player in the big blind engaged in battle on a flop. The big blind ended up being all in, and with about 20,000 on the line, the hands were tabled.
The big blind had a pair of jacks while Ausmus, who recently finished in eighth place in the World Series of Poker National Championship, had a pair of sixes and a flush draw. The turn gave the big blind a bigger lead with two pair, but the river hit Ausmus with trips.
Ausmus sent his opponent to the rail and chipped up to 40,000 in the process.
Meanwhile, WSOP bracelet winner Ken Aldridge has been eliminated from the tournament.
