Stephen Lane (pictured) became the first player to fall in two table play, losing the rest of his chips to Ryan Enis. Lane shoved for 200,000 blind versus blind with J♦2♦ and Enis called with 10♠9♠. The A♥9♣4♥5♥6♣ board paired Enis and he busted Lane. Enis sits with 850,000.
A few hands later, Cartwright jammed the cutoff for 285,000 with 3♣3♦ and Eric Johnson called on the button with A♦5♦.
The A♥K♦2♥ flop put Johnson ahead and the 7♠ turn left Cartwright with two outs. Sure enough, he binked the 3♠ river to double up. Johnson is down to just 175,000.
The 17 remaining players are on a 45-minute dinner break and play resumes at 8:20 pm.
