Yu Wins With Aces

Nível 22 : 20,000/40,000, 0 ante

Ben Yu raised to 140,000 first to act and Jason Mercier called in the big blind. Mercier check-called a bet on the {J-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{2-Clubs} flop, the {6-Diamonds} turn and {9-Clubs} river were checked through. Yu announced aces and showed the {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and that won the pot.

David Prociak Eliminated in 20th Place ($46,190)

We missed the details but Jason Koon told us that David Prociak had gotten his chips in the middle before the flop with aces against the queens of Ryan Tosoc. The latter flopped top set and the turn and river didn't help Prociak anymore to go out just before the next redraw.

Jeffrey Palarino Eliminated in 21st Place ($46,190)

Under the gun plus one, George Wolff limped in for 40,000. His neighbor Jeffrey Palarino potted for 180,000 and the action quickly folded back to Wolff. He called to see a flop.

Wolff led out to put Palarino all in for the few chips he still had behind on {3-Spades}{9-Hearts}{8-Clubs}. Palarino called all in instantly.

Jeffrey Palarino: {9-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{K-Spades}{A-Spades}
George Wolff: {6-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

The {7-Spades} on the turn and {Q-Clubs} were cards in favor of Wolff as he made a straight to beat Palarino's two pair.

Michael Song Eliminated in 22nd Place ($46,190)

Nível 22 : 20,000/40,000, 0 ante
Michael Song
Michael Song

Michael Song raised to 140,000 in the cutoff and Martin Kozlov called from the big blind. The flop came {j-Clubs}{8-Spades}{5-Diamonds} and Kozlov checked to Song who moved all in for his last 50,000. Kozlov called and the cards were tabled.

Martin Kozlov: {8-Hearts}{7-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Spades}
Michael Song: {q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{8-Diamonds}

The {j-Diamonds} on the turn narrowed nearly all of Kozlov's outs, needing to only hit an off-suit six to win the pot. The dealer burned and turned the {6-Hearts} on the river and Kozlov hit exactly what he need to send Song home in 22nd place.

"That's How You Become the Champion"

Nível 22 : 20,000/40,000, 0 ante

Bogdan Capitan chipped up on the outer table while defending champion James Calderaro was left short.

Ben Yu then raised on the button to 140,000 and Calderaro moved all in for 355,000 in the small blind. "It's about the principle," Calderaro joked. Robert Mizrachi gave it some thought in the big blind and folded, Yu quickly called.

James Calderaro: {10-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Ben Yu: {Q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{5-Clubs}

"All diamonds please, six high," Calderaro demanded.

The board came {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{2-Spades}{7-Hearts} and Calderaro got there with two pair on the river.

"Nines and sevens? Boom, yeah," Calderaro said.

"That's how you become the champion, "Yu replied with a very dry smile on his face.

Grazvydas Kontautas Eliminated in 23rd Place ($46,190)

Nível 22 : 20,000/40,000, 0 ante

Grazvydas Kontautas

Martin Kozlov opened to 65,000 in middle position and was called by Grazvydas Kontautas in the cutoff and David Benyamine on the button. Shaun Deeb three-bet to 355,000 from the small blind and both Kontautas and Benyamine called.

The flop came {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} and Deeb announced all in, enough to put both of his opponents at risk. Kontautas quickly called off his last 585,000 and Benyamine called for his remaining 175,000.

David Benyamine: {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}
Shaun Deeb: {a-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{5-Spades}
Grazvydas Kontautas: {10-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}

The turn was the {4-Hearts} and Deeb picked up a wrap to go with his top pair. However, the river brought the {q-Diamonds} and Benyamine made Broadway to triple up. Deeb, on the other hand, eliminated Kontautas with just a pair of aces.

Sam Soverel Eliminated in 24th Place ($46,190)

Nível 21 : 15,000/30,000, 0 ante
Sam Soverel
Sam Soverel

In the first major hand over on the outer table, Sam Soverel raised with his short stack and Robert Mizrachi defended his big blind. The remaining chips went in after a flop of {J-Spades}{6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} and Soverel found himself drawing dead.

Sam Soverel: {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{8-Spades}
Robert Mizrachi: {J-Clubs}{8-Spades}{7-Hearts}{6-Clubs}

Mizrachi had flopped a full house and no cards in the deck could help Soverel, who headed to the rail in 24th place for $46,190.

David Benyamine: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}
Martin Kozlov: {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}{10-Spades}{4-Spades}

Benyamine was out front with his pair of aces against Kozlov's pair of queens. The turn brought the {9-Spades} and the river was the {3-Hearts} as Benyamine earned himself a double up.
