33rd Place: Steven Tabb ($2,175)

Steven Tabb was maintaining an average stack when he ran into the classic race, taking his ace-king against his opponent's pocket queens. The board ran out with no ace or king, and the river fell another queen to add insult to injury. Steven shipped most of his stack over and a few hands later he pushed his five blinds in with king-five. A player called with pocket nines, and the K-9-X flop left Steven in bad shape. No miracle came, so Steven exited the tournament in 33rd place, good for $2,175. He plans to take tomorrow off and come back rested for the Main Event on Tuesday.
