The day stated with quite a few former WSOP Main Event champs in the field, but one of them has just fallen in 1983 champ Tom McEvoy, who you may remember was the first satellite qualifier to win the "Big One."

We didn't pick up the action on the Poker Hall of Famer's final hand until fifth street, which is when he got the last of his chips in against Ron "Schifty" Schiffman.

"I'm not paired yet," McEvoy said optimistically.

"Me neither," Schiffman replied.

McEvoy: {5-}{3-} / {6-}{q-}{9-}{j-} / {q-}
Schiffman: {a-}{3-} / {6-}{k-}{9-}{10-} / {7-}

After sixth and seventh streets were run out, McEvoy ended with a jack-nine low while Schiffman made a nine-seven. A deflated McEvoy collected his things and exited the tournament just shy of the last break of the night.
