The board runs out [5s][9d][5d][2h][3c] and we lose Tom Dobrilovic in 5th.

Posted by drew amato at 1:50 PM
|6th Place - Mark Liberman|
Spiro Mitrokostas opened the action with a raise to 52,000 from under the gun and action folded to Mark Liberman on the button. He announced all in for his remaining 216,000 and action was on Jonathan Jaffe in the big blind. After a few moments he elected to call as did Mitrokostas.
The dealer spread the [4d][Js][5d] flop and Jaffe led for a bet of 128,000. Mitrokostas folded [8h][8s] face up and it was indeed the right fold when Jaffe tabled [Qs][Qh].
Liberman was in bad shape with his [Kh][10d] and with the [5h] turn and [Ah] river he would be sent home in 6th place.
Posted by drew amato at 1:47 PM
|7th Place - Steven Malpere|
Spiro Mitrokostas announced he was all in from under the gun for just over 200,000 and James Campbell quickly called on his immediate left. The other players got out of the way and Steven Malpere called all in for his last 150,000.
The board ran out [As][4d][10c][2s][2c] and Malpere would be eliminated as Mitrokostas doubled up through Campbell.
Posted by drew amato at 1:13 PM
|8th Place - Will Failla|
There will be no back to back victories for Will Failla in this event. He was all in and at risk holding the [As][3s] against the [7d][7h] of Jonathan Jaffe.

Posted by drew amato at 12:52 PM
Players Remaining: 8

Posted by drew amato at 12:50 PM
|9th Place - Eracles Panayiotou|
Eracles Panayiotou sternly said "Raise" as he pushed forward 235,000 and Malpere quickly got out of the way. After a few moments Jaffe announced he was all in and Eracles immediately squirmed in his seat. After about 2 minutes he announced call.
Eracles had Jaffe dominated preflop but the tides would turn when the dealer spread the [6h][7h][9c] flop and Jaffe would now have Eracles reverse dominated. The meaningless [9s][Js] would fill the turn and river and Eracles would be sent to the rail in 9th as Jaffe increases his chip lead. He now sits with 4,300,000

Jonathan Jaffe led out with a bet of 80,000 into Spiro Mitrokostas on a [Ah][7h][4d][10h] board and after about 3 solid minutes Mitrokostas put in a call.
The [As] hit the river and Jaffe quickly announced he was all in.
Mitrokostas would again go into the tank, this time for well over 6 minutes. He continued to talk himself through the hand over and over again, apologizing for the table for taking so long. Eventually he would fold and Jaffe would show him the [Jh][2h] for a jack high flush.
Mitrokostas thanked him for showing him the hand and turned over [Ac][Ks].
Jaffe now sits on 3,560,000 while Mitrokostas drops down to 141,000.

What they are playing for:

Players Remaining: 13
Aaron Smith is no stranger to final tables. Smith has over $275,000 in lifetime earnings including two titles here at Foxwoods. Smith has been grinding a short stack for the last level or so but has been picking his spots carefully and chipping up.
In the last hand Smith found himself all in and in bad shape when his [Kh][Kc] was up against the [Ad][Ah] of his opponent.
The dealer spread out the flop and sure enough the [Kd] was right in the window followed by the [5d][Jc].
The [10d] on the turn would provide his opponent with more outs to knock out Smith but the [Js] river would lock up the pot for Smith.
Smith now sits with 430,000 as we redraw for the final table of 10 and will post final table chip counts once the players are done drawing their seats.
Play will end for the night once we hit 9 players.

The dealer spread the [6d][10c] flop and the small blind checked his option to Jaffe.
"92,000" Jaffe announced as he cut chips out of the mountain of chips he had in front of himself.
The small blind announced all in before Jaffe's chips even crossed the bet line and Jaffe snap called.
Small Blind: [Ac][Qs]
The board ran out [4d][3c] and Jaffe would scoop another big pot as he now sits on over 2,400,000 chips.

On the flop of [Kc][6d][7c] Sean Lee fired out a bet of 36,000 only to be called by Eracles Panayiotou.
The [2s] turn did not slow Lee down as he ripped in a bet of 60,000 which again was called by Eracles.
The [5h] hit the river and Lee again fired a bet of 70,000 and snap called as Eracles announced he was all in.

Action folded around to Haralambos Sardis in the small blind who limped and then called when James Campbell made it 11,000 from the big blind.
The flop came [Ad][10h][8d] and Sardis check called a bet of 13,000 from Campbell.
The turn was the [6c] and Sardis again checked his option to Campbell who put in a bet of 23,000. Sardis check raised all in for about 100,000 and Campbell called.
The [4h] would hit the river and Campbell would send Sardis to the rail in 38th place.
