SugarRush (Day 2): 8th Place – Paul Zurgchka ($3,268)

Level 29 (60,000/120,000/20,000)
Total SugarRush Challenge Entries: 578
Players Remaining: 7
Chip Average: 2,185,000


8th Place: Paul Zurgchka ($3,268)

All players have seen their stacks pushed under under 20 big blinds at some point during the SugarRush Challenge final table but Paul Zurgchka is the unlucky soul among them who did not have his all-in wish granted. Zurgchka was among the chip leaders for nearly all of Day 2 but did not get any forward momentum going at the final table and saw his chip stack drop as a result.

Zurgchka shoved for 1,085,000 from early position and got a caller in Roberto Ilagan from the small blind. Ilagan held a large edge with 1010♠ against the A♠10 of Zurgchka. The J625♠Q♣ board was relatively sweat-proof and Zurgchka is the latest casualty of the final table.

Ilagan is the first player over 4,000,000 and has a chance to pull away from the field should he eliminate another player.
