Joseph Walters (pictured) was decimated after losing an all-in to Dan Martin. He is now out shy of the tournament podium with Thomas Tackett talking the last of his chips. 

Mike Fouts opened the cutoff to 60,000 and Dan Martin called on the button. Tackett three-bet to 200,000 from the small blind and Walters called all-in for 175,000 in the big blind. The other two players folded and Tackett showed KK♠. Walters had a worse case scenario on his hands with K9.

The hand was over on the turn and Walters takes home $12,199. The three remaining players have agreed to shorten the levels to 30 minutes for the rest of the tournament. The three-handed counts are below. 

1. Thomas Tackett - 2,225,000
2. Mike Fouts - 2,600,000
3. Dan Martin - 1,400,000
