Pat Lyons opens for 100,000, Rayo Kniep moves in for 726,000 and DJ Alexander takes a while before deciding to fold - not long enough to trigger the Action Clock, but enough to fully contemplate the odds.

Lyons misses and is out in 9th place, a $30,228 cash.
Kniep is now to 1.9 million, the field 2 eliminations away from the end of the night.
