A popular name in the quest to make the 2010 WSOP final table has been eliminated.

Matt Affleck is out in 15th place but he also walks away with just over $500,000.

Last year Affleck sat atop the WSOP leaderboard at one point and did so again this year.  In 2009 he managed to cash out, but nothing like this yearAffleck plays under the handle LOL_Sickness at Cake Poker. 

Affleck, who comes to us from Mill Creek, Washington, has cashed out in 9 live events to previous to today and has now won over $700,000. 

Almost immediately after Affleck was eliminated, so went Hasan Habib, who had survived a number of player eliminations while he typically held onto the shortest stack.

Michael Mizrachi was clinging to life at the number 13 position with the least number of chips as we approached the 10 pm PST hour.
