The eliminations will be flying for the first level or two here as players battle to build a stack to take through the money bubble, and our first player to leave the room after sitting down was the unfortunate Jan Rusnak.
The Slovakian was all-in over the top for around 15 big blinds after Fabio Sousa opened in late position, but while Rusnak turned over , Sousa flipped and had a stong hold on the hand.
"That's a good start." Rusnak said with wry sarcasm.
The board of saw him depart, and with his opponent vanquished, Sousa was happy to accept congratulations uppon his early fortune from his tablemates.
"I'll take it." said Sousa with a grin. He's up to round 27,000 chips, more than double what he started with.
