Richard Ashby completed and Ben Yu raised. The action got back to Ashby who called, then on fourth street Ashby bet out and Yu called. Yu then folded on fifth, leaving himself with just 19,000 chips.

Ashby: {X-}{X-} / {7-}{8-}{2-}
Yu: {X-}{X-} / {A-}{Q-}{8-} --fold

Two hands later Calvin Anderson had the bring-in and Daniel Negreanu completed. Richard Sklar and Ashby called and Yu tossed in the call as well, keeping just 2,000 chips left behind. On fourth street Negreanu and Sklar checked to Ashby who bet, Yu called all in, and both Negreanu and Sklar called as well.

On fifth Ashby bet again and that got the two other players to fold.

Negreanu: {X-}{X-} / {A-}{4-}{K-} --fold
Sklar: {X-}{X-} / {8-}{6-}{10-} --fold
Ashby: {A-}{9-} / {4-}{3-}{6-}{7-} / {Q-}
Yu: {5-}{2-} / {7-}{10-}{Q-}{2-} / {A-}

Yu was drawing dead on sixth street against Ashby's seven-six when his deuce paired up, and Ashby raked in the pot to cut the field to 19 players.
