16th Place – Wesley Soper ($1,788)

The floodgates for eliminations is cracking open wider and wider as we near the final table as two more players are now on the rail. Both Wesley Soper and Eric Suarez were on the short stack for most of Level 24 and are now on the rail after a deep run in the SugarRush Challenge.

Suarez was eliminated by Chuck Williams, in a massive cooler that capped off Suarez’s downswing through the last few levels. Suarez opened for a standard raise from early position and Williams called on the button to see 10♠9♣2 flop. Suarez checked and Williams bet 125,000, which Suarez called. The J♣ hit the turn and Suarez check-called all-in for 200,000 with 9♠9 and laughed as Williams turned over 10♣10. Drawing to one out, Suarez missed on the river and Williams stacked up to 1,7000,000 after the bust out.


17th Place – Eric Suarez ($1,788)

On the other table, Marder won a small flip to knock out Soper and put himself back near the chip average. Marder shoved the cutoff for about 750,000 with J♠J and Soper called all-in on the button for 400,000 with KQ. The board ran out A105♣10♠5♠ and Marder secured the knockout to give the field a pay jump.
