Don Zewin, David Williams, and Justin Bonomo all lodged complaints with the floor about the use of the RFID cards (the cards used for the live stream) at their table but not at the other table. After a few consultations with tournament staff, they are swapping out shuffle machines and going with the regular cards. The clock is paused briefly while they take care of this, but cards should be back in the air within the next minute.

We arrived at the table in time to see Mike Leah already all in against John D'Agostino, Jordan Morgan, and Don Zewin on a board. There were two checks over to Zewin who shipped out a bet. D'Agostino called and Morgan followed suit.
The finished the board and D'Agostino checked. Morgan fired a bet and Zewin went into the tank. After about one minute, Zewin released and D'Agostino did so as well.
Morgan rolled over for a straight to the king.
"Payout!" said Leah, standing up from his seat. His card were pulled into the muck before we had the opportunity to see them. Leah's elimination has prompted a total redraw to the final two tables.
We didn't catch the action but a short-stacked Tony Merksick was eliminated when his was bested by Justin Bonomo's when the board ran out to give Bonomo a set of queens. Merksick was eliminated in 20th place for $8,957.
