$250 Ladies Final Table Reached

The final 10 players have been reached in the $250 Ladies Event.  The players are taking their seats at the final table and is now streaming live at

1st Place: Randal Sklar ($23,969)

Randal Sklar had his opponent all in twice already, but it looked like the third time would be the charm as Randal had [Ad][Ac] against Jeff's [Ah][Jd].  The [2h][8h][3s] flop was no help for Jeff, but the [Jc] on the turn did open up two outs for him.  This time, Jeff did not suck out as the river fell the [2d].

Randal has won Event #9: $580 NLH for $23,969, along with the World Series of Poker Circuit Ring.  His rail of supporters immediately congratulated and hug their friend, and happily posed for pictures with the latest WSOP-C champion.  With this win, Randal is now in 2nd place in points for the WSOP-C Casino Champion.

2nd Place: Jeff Hall ($14,816)

Jeff Hall doubles up again

After limping in from the small blind, Randal Sklar moved all in from the big blind.  Jeff thought for a bit and then decided to call.

Randal [7s][7d]
Jeff [Qd][9d]

The dealer put out the [4d][2c][Td] flop, keeping Randal in front.  The [Js] turn opened a world of outs for Jeff, and he made his runner-runner straight when the [Kc] hit the river.

Jeff Hall doubles through Randal Sklar

Jeff Hall was all in preflop holding [Kc][Qc] and was up against Randal Sklar's [As][8s].  Randal's rail asked for an ace in the window, but instead the dealer spread the [5c][Th][Jh] flop.  Now an ace would give Jeff an unbeatable straight, and amazingly the [Ac] hit the turn.  The meaningless [3h] was dealt on the river to give Jeff the doubleup.  He now has 700,000 to Randal's 1.4 million.

Heads up chip counts

Randal Sklar (1.4 million) vs. Jeff Hall (600,000)

3rd Place: Thomas Walsh ($10,662)

Thomas Walsh (standing, right) watches as the last card falls
Thomas Walsh was all in preflop holding [9s][9c] and was up against the [Ah][Kh] of Randal Sklar.  The flop fell [4c][5s][Ac], giving Randal top pair.  The [Tc] turn gave Thomas a flush draw to go with his two outs to a set.  The dealer burned and placed the [6d] on the river, however, and Thomas will exit this tournament in 3rd place.  He will collect $10,662 for his efforts.

4th Place: William Foxen ($7,812)

William Foxen was all in preflop holding [Ad][Jd] against Thomas Walsh's [Ac][Qc].  William did pick up chop outs on the [Ah][9c][Kh] flop, but the [3s] turn and [5s] river had William heading to the rail in 4th place.  He will earn $7,812 for his efforts.

5th Place: Chris Jenkins ($5,832)

Chris Jenkins has been eliminated in 5th place when his [Kh][Td] failed to improve against his opponent's [Qh][Qc].  The board ran out [5d][2h][5s][7d][8s], and Chris will head to the payout desk to collect $5,832.

6th Place: Tim Lahey ($4,421)

Continuing his good run at this final table, Randal Sklar has eliminated another player.  This time Randal's [Ac][Kh] was dominating Tim Lahey's [As][Js], all in preflop.  Tim flopped a gutshot on the [4d][Ks][Td] flop, but failed to find a jack or a queen on the [8d] turn and [6c] river.  Tim will earn $4,421 for his 6th place finish today.

K Papanikos was all in preflop holding [8s][3s] and needed some help as he was called by Jeff Hall holding [Ad][Jh].  The [2d][Qd][Kh] was no help, and the [Kd] turn meant K could not hit a diamond eight or three anymore.  The river fell the [Jc], unnecessarily pairing Jeff's hole cards.  K will earn $2,681 for his 8th place finish.

9th Place: Derek Chin ($2,142)

Derek Chin was all in preflop holding [Td][Tc] and was in good shape to double up against his opponent's [As][9s].  Unfortunately, for Derek, the flop fell [7c][9h][Ac], leaving him drawing to two outs.  The [2s] turn and [5c] were not what he was looking for, and Derek will exit this tournament in 9th place.  Derek collect $2,142 for his efforts.
