Jared Bleznick was in the big blind, and he tossed in two time extensions, saying, “I need a minute.” Bleznick proceeded to walk around the table for the full minute sitting back down to call. The flop fell Bleznick checked Eveslage bet 25,000 and Bleznick check raised to 75,000. Eveslage called.

Evesalge moved all-in, and Bleznick shook his head, threw his hands in the air, and mucked.
Bleznick would double up a few shuffles later but eventually ran his remaining chips into the middle playing Razz against Coleman. Bleznick was all-in by fourth street and made a ten-nine on sixth, while Coleman made trip aces on the fifth but improved to a nine-draw on sixth. Bleznick peeled a nine on seventh to pair his nine, and when Coleman peeled a five, he made nine-six to send Bleznick out the door in seventh place.
Hal Rotholz would be Coleman’s final victim of the evening after running his pocket sevens into Coleman’s pocket kings pre-flop playing limit hold’em. The board ran out jack-high, and Rotholz couldn’t find his two outer to stay alive and was eliminated to burst the Event #6 money bubble in sixth place.
With six events remaining, the race for the purple jacket is heating up as Daniel Negreanu currently leads the way with 281 points after taking home the trophy in Event #5. Ausmus is the only player at the final table in the top ten and currently sits in 10th place with 146 points.

Eveslage is the only other player in the field with Poker Master points after finishing fourth in Event #4, and a win moves him into the top five.
