Anyone's Game at Table #451

• Nível 20: 6,000-12,000, 12,000 ante

Clayton Kalisek got his remaining 230,000 or so chips in preflop and was at risk against Christopher Brand.

Clayton Kalisek: {a-Spades}{7-Hearts}
Christopher Brand: {9-Clubs}{9-Spades}

The flop came {k-Hearts}{10-Spades}{5-Spades}, and the {10-Hearts} came on the turn to give Kalisek additional outs. One of those additional outs spiked the river with the {k-Clubs} to counterfeit Brand's nines.

Now, all four players at table #451 are close in chips and any of them could be the one to advance from the table.

Tran Turns Set to Crack Aces and Get Heads Up

Ugur Secilmis had all of his 300,000 or so chips in and at risk against David Tran preflop.

Ugur Secilmis: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}
David Tran: {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}

The dealer spread the clean {k-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{3-Spades} flop, and then put out the {6-Hearts} on the turn to change everything. The {8-Diamonds} completed the board to send Secilmis home after getting it in with the best hand in poker.

Tran was in shock at his good fortune and happily said, "Unbelievable. I don't believe it."

Meanwhile, Mikolaitis was quiet and tried to make a quick exit before coming back to claim his min-cash.

The two-outer on the turn vaulted Tran into the lead and he is now beginning heads-up play with Dominykas Mikolaitis on table #450, where only one of them will advance to the final table.
