Shields Doubles Again

Nível 22 : 8,000/16,000, 2,000 ante
Edison Shields

Edison Shields found another double-up, but he had fallen short again previously, so he's back up to where he was after his last double. This time Shields got it all in preflop against Gregg Merkow.

Merkow: {k-Diamonds}{9-Spades}
Shields: {k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

"I'm in better shape than I thought!" Shields said excitedly.

"Look out. I'm running good," replied Merkow.

The flop was dangerous for Shields, coming {2-Spades}{4-Spades}{j-Spades} to give Merkow a flush draw. The turn and river did not complete the flush though — coming {7-Diamonds}, then {8-Clubs} — and Shields was safe.

Shields commented on the unfortunate flop. "What are you complaining about? You faded it," said Merkow.

Two Pair for Thomassie

Nível 22 : 8,000/16,000, 2,000 ante

Dylan Thomassie opened to 32,000 from late position and Ted Gillis made the call from the small blind. The flop was {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}{j-Hearts} and Gillis checked. Thomassie bet 38,000 and Gillis raised to 76,000. Thomassie made the call and the turn was the {k-Diamonds}. Both players checked to see the river {2-Spades}.

Again both players checked and Gillis rolled over {a-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}. Thomassie tabled {j-Spades}{10-Diamonds} for two pair and won the pot.

Patel Doubles Shields

Nível 22 : 8,000/16,000, 2,000 ante

Edison Shields has made an early double-up after pushing all in from the big blind following Hiren Patel's opening raise from the cutoff. Patel made the call and the race was on.

Shields: {a-Spades}{j-Hearts}
Patel: {4-Clubs}{4-Hearts}

Board: {q-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{k-Spades}

Shields was in need of some chips, and Patel will hardly miss them with the massive stack he still has remaining.

Twelve Return With Their Eyes on a Big Payday in Event #19

Hiren Patel
Hiren Patel

Welcome to Day 3 of the latest $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em event. They started Day 2 with 233 players, quickly reaching the money and then whittling down to just 12 remaining after 10 levels of play. Hiren Patel comes in as the chip leader with an impressive stack of 1,873,000.

A few of the notables that made the money but failed to advance to Day 3 included Jason Somerville, Matt Affleck, and Loni Harwood. Phil Collins was also making a quest for his second final table of the summer, but fell short as he was eliminated early in two-table play for a 16th-place finish.

Johnny “World” Hennigan, Jacobo Fernandez, and Mustapha Kanit also remain, but all will start at quite a chip disadvantage to Patel. Kanit (1,183,000) and Ted Gillis (1,118,000) are the two other players who are over the million-chip mark and Jaime Kaplan (984,000) is close behind.

We are only three eliminations from the final table and 11 eliminations from finding the next WSOP champion. A huge payout of $514,027 awaits today's winner.

Play is set to begin at 1 p.m. local time today. Be sure to follow PokerNews as we bring you the action, including hand-for-hand action of the final table.
