Joe Cada slipped a bit to start the day, doubling an opponent at his table, but after eliminating that very same player, he's closing back in on a six-figure stack.
Cada's opponent opened to 4,100, The 2009 Main Event Champion three-bet to 11,600, and the action folded back to his opponent who went deep into the tank. The ESPN crew hovered over the table as the man sat silently, and when he finally grabbed the rest of his 28,000-chip stack, Cada beat him into the pot.
The flop was fairly dry, but the turned, giving Cada's opponent ten more outs to Broadway. The river was the however - a brick - and Cada's opponent was eliminated from the tournament.
