Ali celebrating his PPO Main Event success.

Ali is always having a good time at the poker table.  He definitely has reason to celebrate this evening.  Ali went on an incredible run and eliminated back-to-back players within a 20-minute span.

Dave Serkoch was eliminated by Ali in the middle of the round (no pun intended).  As most poker players know, Ali is not hesitant to play in huge pots and get his chips into the middle before the flop.  Serkoch finished the tournament in 7th Place.

Ali:  8♠ 8♦

Serkoch:  A♥ K♥

Ray Joll regroups after a huge take down.

It seemed as though no one would be able to eliminate Jason Removcik, but Joll did just that the final table.  Joll fopped a set of 8s (K♥ 8♥) on a flop of 8♣ 9♠ 8♠.  Removcik shoved all-in and was instantly called by Joll.  Removcik turned over his pocket Js (J♣ J♠).
