$1,100 Thursday Thrilla Bounty
Level 15: 4,000/8,000/1,000
Entries: 90
Players Remaining: 9

With 11 spots paid, the final nine has come together quite quickly. The first player to go was Jake Irvin.

Scott Waugaman limped in from the cutoff and Irvin moved all in from the big blind for 38,000. Waugaman thought for a full minute before deciding to call. Waugaman tabled [jhth] and Irvin revealed [ah9s]. There was an ace in the window, but the flop came [askhqd] to give Waugaman a straight. The turn was a sweat when the [ac] came, but the river was the [4c] and Irvin was eliminated in 11th place for $1,500.

In a blind vs blind hand, action folded to Michael Faulkner in the small blind and he shoved for 50,000. Waugaman was in the big blind and called. Faulkner was disappointed to see his [qc9s] was well behind the two red kings of Waugaman. The board ran out dry, and Faulkner took home $1,500 for his tenth place finish.
