Foxwoods December 2011 Mega Stack Challenge Saturday 12/10 $180 NLH Final Results

1st Place: Gregory White ($59,087)


After eliminating Salvatore Morello in 3rd place, Gregory White and David Stefanski discussed and subsequently agreed to a chop.  Gregory White will collect $59,087 and the title, while David Stefanski will collect $69,000 for his 2nd place finish.  Congratulations to all of the winners!

3rd Place: Salvatore Morello ($30,376)


Salvatore Morello raised preflop and Gregory White moved all in, having Salvatore covered.  Salvatore frustratingly made the call holding the [Ah][3d], and he was in trouble against Gregory's [As][Qc].  The board ran out [5c][8c][5d][Kh][2c], and Salvatore missed all of his outs on the river to be eliminated in 3rd place.  He will collect $30,376 for his efforts.

4th Place: Matthew Pierce ($23,079)

Matthew Pierce was all in preflop holding [Jc][Ts] against his opponent's [Ah][7d].  Matthew turned a gutshot straight draw on the [5h][6c][Kh][Ac] board, but failed to hit it when the river fell the [4c].  Matthew will exit this tournament in 4th place, earning $23,079 for his efforts.

Salvatore Morello doubles up!


On a flop of [5h][3c][9h], Salvatore Morello got all in holding [Ah][Ac] against the [Js][Jd] of Matthew Pierce.  When the turn and river fell [3d][4h], Salvatore became the new chip leader, leaving Matthew to drop from first to last in the chip counts.

Updated chip counts at break

Chip leader Matthew Pierce's chip stack

The remaining 4 players from the $1,200 Mega Stack event are now on a 10 minute break.  When they return, they will be playing 40,000/80,000 blinds with a 10,000 ante.  Here are updated chip counts:

Matthew Pierce - 4,470,000
David Stefanski - 4,140,000
Salvatore Morello - 3,235,000
Gregory White - 1,030,000

David Stefanski makes a rare 4-bet!


The hand started innocently enough, with Gregory White limping in under the gun.   David Stefanski raised the 60,000 big blind, and Matthew Pierce elected to 3-bet it.  Salvatore Morello, who hadn't yet put a chip in the pot, cold called the 3-bet, leaving Gregory to slip out of the hand.  Action was back on David, who announced raise, and finally settled on a 4-bet size of 1,545,000.  Matthew eventually folded, as did Salvatore, and David increased his chip lead over the field.

Chip counts for final 4

Here are updated chip counts for the final 4 players in the $1,200 Mega Stack event:

Salvatore Morello - 4,830,000
David Stefanski - 4,615,000
Matthew Pierce - 2,630,000
Gregory White - 775,000

5th Place: Monty Dennis ($18,666)


Monty Dennis raised under the gun from 50,000 to 200,000, only to be reraised all in by Matthew Pierce.  Monty eventually made the call with the [9s][9c] only to see the bad news that he was up against Matthew's [Jh][Jc].  When the board fell [Qs][Ah][Js][As][4h], Monty hit the rail in 5th place, collecting $18,666 for his efforts.

6th Place: Stephen Rimer ($15,273)


David Stefanski opened the action with a raise on the button, and Stephen Rimer moved all in from the small blind for his last 685,000. Matthew Pierce folded his big blind, and David insta-called, having Stephen covered. Stephen showed [Ad][Kd] but was behind David's [9s][9c]. The board fell [Qc][4d][Jc][2c][4h], ensuring David's pocket nines held up. Stephan will exit this tournament in 6th place, earning $15,273 for his showing.

Updated chip counts at break

Here are updated chip counts at the break. When the players return, they will be playing 25,000/50,000 blinds with a 5,000 ante.

Salvatore Morello - 3,560,000
David Stefanski - 3,425,000
Matthew Pierce - 3,095,000
Gregory White - 1,380,000
Stephen Rimer - 775,000
Monty Dennis - 740,000

7th Place: Arthur Fera ($12,727)


Arthur Fera was all in preflop holding [Ad][Qs] to Salvatore Morello's [Kd][Kc].  When the flop fell [8s][Js][As], Salvatore found himself in bad shape, as he needed to hit his one outer to take the lead.  Salvatore did just that when the turn came a miraculous [Kh], putting him in the lead but leaving him vulnerable to any river spade to give Arthur a flush.  It was not to be, however, as the river fell the [2d] to eliminate Arthur in 7th place, earning him $12,727 for his efforts.

8th Place: Jeremy Barron ($9,843)


Jeremy Brown moved all in under the gun for his last 255,000 and was called by Gregory White in the big blind.  Gregory had [6h][6c] but was behind Jeremy's [As][Ah].  The flop was safe for Jeremy when it fell [Qh][4c][2c], but when the [6d] hit the turn, Jeremy found himself drawing to two outs.  The [Qc] hit the river to give Gregory the winning full house, and sending Jeremy to the rail in 8th place.  Jeremy took the beat very well, and the $9,843 he earned will be a nice prize to ease his pain.

Gregory White doubles up!


On a [Td][Tc][8h] flop, Gregory White moved all in holding pocket aces.  Stephen Rimer made the call with a pair of sixes, but the turn and river were kind to Gregory, and his pocket aces held up.  He now has over 1,200,000.

9th Place: Scott Dorey ($7,481)


After a raise by Stephen Rimer, Scott Dorey moved all in for his last 305,000 and Stephen made the call.  As the table said, it was a classic race, with Stephen holding [Ac][Kh] to Scott's [Ts][Tc].  When the board ran out [6h][Js][6c][8d][3c], Stephen found himself heading to the rail to collect his $7,481 for his 9th place finish.

10th Place: Dr. Kammar Andries ($6,176)


Dr. Kammar Andries was all in on a [Ts][5s][9s] flop holding the [Ac][Td].  While he held top pair, he was in very big trouble as David Stefanski held the [5h][5c].  Kammar would need runner runner to win the pot.  The turn brought a glimmer of hope as the [6s] gave Kammar chop outs with any spade, but the river [5d] gave David unnecessary quad fives to eliminate Kammar.  Kammar will earn $6,176 for his 10th place finish.

All In and a Call on the first hand!


On the first hand of the final table, action folded to our short stack Stephen Rimer in the 6 seat, who moved all in for his last 495,000. Chip leader Matthew Pierce in the small blind made the call, and the hands were exposed. Stephen was well ahead with his [4h][4d] vs. the [2h][2d] of Matthew. The board ran out clean, and Stephen doubled up and is now 5th in chips.

$1,200 Mega Stack Final Table Underway

The final 10 players of the $1,200 Mega Stack are now back from dinner break. There are 48 minutes left in the 15,000/30,000 blind level, and the button will begin in the 9 seat. The average stack is currently 1,284,000, and the far and away chip leader is Matthew Pierce with 3,375,000. The short stack is Stephen Rimer with 500,000, so he'll have some work to do this level. All players are guaranteed at least $6,176, with 1st place taking home $82,948.

Rob Brown has been eliminated





After getting his chips all in a few times, Rob Brown finally doubled up with pocket eights against his opponent's AJ. The flop came jack high, but Rob spiked an eight on the river to earn the double up.

A few hands later, Rob found himself in great shape to double up again, getting it all in with AQ against his opponent's AJ. His opponent held the [As], however, and that proved to be the key card as the board ran out with runner runner spades to give his opponent the winning hand and the knockout.

Rob Brown will exit the tournament in 13th place, and will earn $4,921 for his efforts. All of the remaining 12 players are guaranteed at least a $6,176 payday.
