Chris Korres' Upward Climb (Event #16 $400 Big Stack Freezeout)

There were five to see the flop in an unraised pot.  All five checked when the flop came [7s][5c][4c].  The small blind checked the [7d] turn, the big blind bet 4,000. Chris Korres called in the hijack and the small blind also called, the other two players folded.  When the [8c] came on the river, the small blind led out for 9,000.  The big blind called, as did Korres.  The small blind announced, "straight," but didn't show his cards.  The big blind turned over [10c][3c], but Korres turned over [qc][jc] for the higher flush.  Korres took down the pot and is now sitting with 175,000 in chips.  Average is 75,000.

Johnny Lau Eliminated in 12th Place ($1,742)


On a board reading [3d][8d][js] Michael Dobbs checked in the hijack, Randy Spain bet 95,000 in the cutoff, and Johnny Lau shoved all in on the button.  With action back on Dobbs, he reshoved for more and Spain released his hand.

Dobbs:  [ah][jh]
Lau:  [qc][jc]

The [as] on the turn and [4h] on the river assured Dobbs would take down the hand and Lau was sent home in 12th place.

Linda Swears Eliminated in 21st Place ($1,124)

Linda Swears - 21st Place - $1,124
Linda Swears was all in holding [ah][8h] against her opponent's [6d][6h].

When the flop came [qh][6c][3c], her opponent moved even further into the lead after flopping a set.  But Swears turned a flush draw when the turn came the [2h].  Unfortunately for Swears, the [10s] river did not bring the flush and she was sent home in 21st place.
