Mike Reci didn't seem too happy when Sandeep Sikand check-called his 30K turn bet on an AK2Q board. He seemed further upset to have to put his last 115K in the middle when the 8 came on the river. Reci said, "Good luck, boys," as Sikand gave counted out the chips and gave it it about a-half-minute before making the call. Reci's demeanor turned rosy as he turned over JT for the nuts. Sikand's KJ went to the muck as he succumbed to the double-up.
Meanwhile, our second elimination took place Tracy Sibson's short stack dance was ended by Ben Grise's pocket queens. Sibson managed to parlay a stack of under 50K when we hit the money into a 26th place finish, nearly doubling his payday. The levels have just gone up once again as we step deeper into that high cotton.
