Runner-Runner Ruins Fatehi's Suckout

Nível 7 : 300-600, 100 ante

Ali Reza Fatehi opened to 1,800, and Pascal Hartmann made it 5,300 to go in the big blind. Fatehi came back with 17,100 and called off his remaining stack, a little under 50,000 total, when Hartmann jammed.

Hartmann: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}
Fatehi: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}

Victory seemed all but assured for Hartmann until {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} flopped to give Fatehi a straight. Running {k-Spades} and {k-Clubs} sent the pot back to the German though, giving him a full house.

Schemion Pains Silver

Nível 7 : 300-600, 100 ante
Ole Schemion
Ole Schemion

After unknown earlier action, three players arrived on the turn on a {Q-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} board. From the big blind, Schemion bet 3,300, Silver called and the third player folded.

The river brought the {6-Hearts} and the German opted for an overbet of 15,000. Silver quickly called, but got shown the bad news as Schemion tabled {Q-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} for queens full. Silver flashed {A-Clubs}{A-Spades} before mucking his hand.

Banic Takes from Lijo

Nível 7 : 300-600, 100 ante

Right back from the dinner break, Lander Lijo raised to 1,500 and Ivan Banic called in the big blind. The duo checked the {7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} flop and Banic then check-called a bet worth 3,500 on the {6-Clubs} turn. Banic's bet of 9,100 on the {J-Clubs} river won the pot uncontested, as Lijo folded and dropped back to starting stack.

Banic has three times of that, only trailing Craig Varnell on the same table.

Dinner Break on Day 1a

Nível 6 : 250-500, 75 ante

The remaining 142 players out of a 231-entry strong field thus far have been sent into a 75-minute dinner break and will return at approximately 9.33 p.m. local time. When the action resumes, another two levels of 75 minutes each are scheduled before bagging and tagging.

Early Dinner for Alt

Nível 6 : 250-500, 75 ante

Maxi Lehmanski opened to 1,200 from middle position and the action folded to Dinesh Alt, who pushed for his last 6,225 on the button. The big blind was about to call before being reminded that there was an all in, then folded. Lehmanski quickly called and Alt was the player at risk.

Dinesh Alt: {5-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}
Maxi Lehmanski: {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}

After a board of {K-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{9-Spades}{A-Clubs}{6-Clubs}, Alt was eliminated and said "best hand in an hour" with a dry smile on the face before exiting the tournament area close to the end of level six.

Schillhabel Coolers Moore for Monster Pot

Nível 6 : 250-500, 75 ante

We didn't catch the action, but a preflop raising war between Stefan Schillhabel (button) and Joshua Moore (small blind) wound up with the latter all in for 95,000 and called.

Schillhabel: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}
Moore: {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}

It was a cooler in Schillhabel's favor, and the board ran out {q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{10-Spades}{3-Spades}, leaving the aces best. Moore seemed none too worried about the nasty scenario he'd run into.

"Happens," he said with a smile. "Good luck, guys."

Seat Open for Kerignard

Nível 6 : 250-500, 75 ante

Yorane Kerignard and table neighbor Frank Werder got into a raising war that saw the former end up all-in for less than the starting stack with the {A-Hearts}{10-Hearts}. Werder had that dominated with {K-Hearts}{K-Spades} on the button and the board came {9-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{2-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}. The over card and flush draw failed to hit for Kerignard and the Frenchman was eliminated.
