There was some excitement when Gerry Shebar had in the hole and went all in against the pocket of Ken Tramiel. Gerry flopped trips with , improved on the turn to a full house with , only to be overturned on the river when Ken made his two-outer (), knocking Gerry out.
The game progressed with Syd Shaber finishing 3rd and the remaining two players having an equal amount of chips. The heads up game lasted a little over an hour and it ended up with with Joe Wievelhaus coming in 2nd and Madhav Goyal taking the honors for the day.
