Event 18: Mitrokostas Runs Down Reilly in Massive Pot

Level 14
Blinds 1000/2000/300
Players Remaining: 62
Spiro Mitrokostas collects his new chips.

After a pre-flop raising war, Spiro Mitrokostas and Tim Reilly were both all in with over 340,000 chips in the middle.

Reilly: [Ah][Kh]
Mitrokostas: [As][Qs]

Reilly had Mitrokostas crushed and after the [4d][5h][6h] flop, Mitrokostas was drawing extremely thin.

The [7d] gave Mitrokostas a few extra outs to a chop, but he wouldn't need them as he managed to find the [Qd] on the river.

Reilly was in disbelief as was Mitrokostas and after a few moments Reilly packed his things and headed out of the tournament area.

Mitrokostas now sits with 345,000.

Players are now on their last 15 minute break of the night.

Event 18: Frankenberger Sets Off Opponent

Level 14
Blinds 1000/2000/300
Players Remaining: 66
Andy Frankenberger
Andy Frankenberger raised under the gun to 4,500. Action folded around to the button who called and both players in the blinds tagged along.
The flop was [2d][7d][4s], both blinds and Frankenberger checked the action to the button who opened the betting to 8,000. The small blind called and the big blind announced he was all in for 48,700. Frankenberger went deep into the tank and eventually said call.
The button and the small blind both got out of the way. 

Big blind: [4h][9h]
Frankenberger: [7h][7s]

The board ran out [Ad][4c] and Frankenberger would rake in a big pot. He now sits with over 200,000 with 17 minutes remaining in level 14.

Event 18: How Do You Stack Up?

Traditional 20 stacks of Andy Frankenberger

Jonathan Jaffe's Stack

James Campbell now over 300,000

Will "The Thrill" Failla's Towers

Event 18: Reilly Wakes Up With Two Ladies

Level 13
Blinds 800/1600/200
Players Remaining: 78
Tim Reilly

Action folded to Mike Jarvela in middle position who announced he was all in for his last 28,400. Spiro Mitrokostas called out of the small blind only to see Tim Reilly announce that he was all in from the big blind. Mitrokostas called.
Mitrokostas: [Ah][Jd]
Jarvela: [7d][8d]
Reilly: [Qh][Qs]

The board ran out [2c][2s][2h][10d][10s] and Reilly would more than double up to 130,000.

Event 18: Adams Doubles First Hand Back From Break

Level 13
Blinds 800/1600/200
Players Remaining: 85
Justin Adams

On the first hand back from break Justin Adams found himself all in and at risk.

Adams: [As][4s]
Opponent: [8c][8h]


Adams would have to dodge a queen, a seven, an eight, or the board running out a pair to get the double. The [2c] turn kept Adams ahead and he would secure the double with the [4c] river.

Adams is up to 135,000

Event 18: Campbell's Ladies Propel Him Into Chip Lead

Level 12
Blinds 600/1200
Players Remaining: 85

Campbell rakes in a massive pot.
James Campbell opened cut off and was immediately three-bet by Jonathan Jaffe on the button. The small blind put in a four-bet and it led to a clicking battle that ended with James Campbell all in and at risk in a huge pot.

Campbell: [Qh][Qc]
Small Blind: [Ac][Kh]

The board ran out [3c][9d][2d][6d][3h] and Campbell would double up to over 280,000 which currently has him at the top of the chip counts.

Players are currently on their second 15-minute break of the day. 

Event 18: Paredes Flushed Out of the Main

Level 12
Blinds 600/1200/200
Players Remaining: 88

A player raised from under the gun to 3,000 and the action folded around to the small blind who tagged along. Dave Paredes announced all in from the big blind, the original raiser folded and the small blind snap called.

Paredes: [Qh][Qd]
Big Blind: [9d][9c]

The flop came [Kc][Qc][9d] and Paredes was in great shape to double up. The turn was the [4c] providing the player in the big blind additional outs to a flush, and sure enough the [Ac] hit the river to send Paredes to the rail.

There is 18 minutes left in level 12 and the players will be on their second 15 minute break at the end of this level.

We caught up to the action on table 7 as a player had moved all in on a [8d][Jc][4d][7d] board. Sean Lee put in the 22,000 for the call and the hands were tabled.

Lee: [Kd][Js]
Opponent: [Ad][Qs]

"Come on baby! No diamond!" Lee yelled as he saw his opponents hand.

Event 18: Mitrokostas Busts Dube...Twice

Level 10
Blinds 400/800/100
Players Remaining: 135
Spiro Mitrokostas

After already busting Mark Dube earlier today when his [As][Qh] ran down Dube's [Jc][Jd], Spiro Mitrokostas has busted Dube for the second time. In the most recent hand Dube found himself all in and at risk for his last 19,575 with [Qd][Jd]. Mitrokostas went into the tank and eventually called with [Ac][Qs] and was in great shape to send Dube packing.
The dealer spread the [10h][Kd][Jh] flop and Mitrokostas improved to broadway. The [7c] on the turn had Dube drawing to only a chop, but he would recieve no such help with the [10s] river, and Mitrokostas would send Dube to the rail for the second time today.
Mitrokostas now sits with over 140,000.

With registration now closed, the final number of entries is 238. The prize pool and payouts will be posted soon!

Event 18: Israelashvili "Traps" Aces

Level 9
Blinds 300/600/75
Players Registered: 228
Roland Israelashvili
 Four players saw the flop in a limped pot of [4s][9h][3c]. Action checked to a player in middle position who bet 6,100 into a pot of only around 3,000. Andy Frankenberger called on the button and Roland Israelashvili quickly raised from the small blind to 19,000. The original raiser pushed in his remaining chips totaling around 30,000 and Frankenberger folded. Israelashvili quickly announced call and the hands were tabled. 

Israelashvili: [3d][4d] 
Opponent: [Ac][Ah]

The board ran out [Kc][2c] and Israelashvili would take down the pot as he now sits with well over 100,000. 
After the hand he turned to Frankenberger with a smile and said "Did you see that? Did you see me trap him preflop?" as the table burst out into laughter.

Event 18: JCamby Chipping Up Early

Level 9
Blinds 300/600/75
Players Registered: 223
James "JCamby33" Campbell

5 players saw a flop of [6s][2c][Kc] and a player from middle position put in a bet of 4,000. 3 players behind him, including James Campbell called and the small blind tagged along as well.
The turn was the [5c] and action checked through to Campbell on the button, who put in a bet of 8,100. The small blind went into the tank for a minute or two before announcing he was all in for about 15,000 more and the rest of the table got out of the way. Campbell quickly called and the hands were flipped over.
Small Blind: [5s][6d]
Campbell: [Qc][9c]
The meaningless [As] hit the river and Campbell would win the pot and chip up to over 120,000.
