Gary Stokes started the day with a mere 37,000, but has since turned that into massive 280,000. His latest all in showdown was a big one, as he got it in against Erik Bloma on a :::Ah:::As:::4d flop, holding the :::Ad:::Jd for trips. Bloma held :::4s:::4c for the full house, and could all but yell "fuck sake" when he saw the :::Jh on the turn.
No miracle quads, but the blank :::Qc followed on the river and Bloma was gone.
Rauno Tahvonen is also no longer in contention. A few minutes ago he three-bet to 17,500 and folded to a shove, the remainder of his stack has since vanished.
