Total SugarRush Challenge Entries: 578
Players Remaining: 6
Chip Average: 2,545,000


Joe Del Grosso was near the outhouse for most of the final table but he is nearing the penthouse after his elimination of Joseph Tapilo. 

The parade of players making a trip to the pay is at a fever pitch with Joseph Tapilo the latest to join the dearly departed. Tapilo came into the final table with under five big blinds but hopped, skipped, and jumped up the pay ladder. Joe Del Grosso stopped Tapilo dead in his tracks from climbing any further, bringing the field down to six.

Tapilo moved all-in for 1,600,000 with 6♣6 from the cutoff and Del Grosso woke up with AA♠ in the big blind. Tapilo needed to improve but found nothing positive in the Q♣22 flop. The 7 turn and 9♣ river left Tapilo with only his underpair and he exited in seventh place. Del Grosso is now at his peak for his event with 3,500,000.
