The first man out in Thursday night's World Series of Poker Championship was Dan Nassif, a 33-year-old newspaper ad sales executive from St. Louis, who had the smallest stack coming into the final table of 2.6 million.

Nassif, holding an ace and king, bet all-in on the fifth hand of the day when the flop showed a plain-looking five, three and two.

But Gold held pocket twos, giving him a killer three-of-a-kind, and he made the call instantly. An ace and 10 did not change Gold's winning hand.

Nassif jokingly apologized "to everyone back home who ordered the pay-per-view" after his final table run ended in just 20 minutes. He said he would return to his job despite going home $1.57 million richer.

Gold then knocked out Swedish pro Erik Friberg when Friberg went all-in with a pair of jacks but ran smack into Gold's pocket queens. For good measure, Gold hit another queen on the river, sending the 23-year-old Friberg home in eighth place with $1.97 million.

"I'm feeling disappointed," said Friberg, the third Swede to make it to the World Series' final table in the past three years. "I don't know what happened out there."

Doug Kim was also knocked out before a 7 p.m. mini break. As of the break, Jamie Gold is the leader, followed by Richard Lee, Allen Cunningham, Paul Wasicka, Rhett Butler, and Michael Binger.
