Four way chop agreed upon!

The final 4 players have agreed to an even chop oof the remaining prizepool, with Vito Masi taking home the trophy and the title.  Here and the final results:

1st Place: Vito Masi ($10,733)
2nd Place: Aaron Belardo ($10,733)
3th Place: Dan Castoria ($10,733)
4th Place: Raj Patel ($10,733)

5th Place: Michael Nye ($4,330)

Michael Nye moved all in under the gun and was called by Aaron Belardo. Micheal was dominated with [Ah][9h] against Aaron's [Ad][Qd] and would need to improve to survive. The [6c][4s][Jd] flop changed nothing, and the [7d] turn and [8s] river meant Michael would exit this tournament in 5th place. He will earn $4,330 for his efforts.

6th Place: Chris MacNeil ($3,529)

7th Place: Bernard Downey ($2,887)

Bernard Downey was all in and in great shape to double up with [Qh][Qd] against Chris MacNeil's [As][5d].  The [6d][2s][Th] flop was safe for Bernard, but the [3d] gave Chris a gutshot to go with his overcard. The [4h] hit the river to give Chris a runner-runner straight to win the pot. The stacks were counted down, and Chris had Bernard slightly covered, so he will be our 7th place finisher. Bernard earns $2,887 for his efforts.

Aaron Belardo doubles through Vito Masi in dramatic fashion

Aaron Belardo was in good shape to double-up as he was all in with [As][Ks] against Vito Masi's [Ac][9c]. The [Kd][5d][9s] flop was as perfect as you he could ask for, as he was a 92% favorite to win the hand. Improbably, the [9d] was the next card to fall, and the tables turned. Now Aaron had only a 5% chance of surviving. In dramatic fashion, the [Kh] hit the river to deliver the two outer Aaron was looking for, doubling him up and keeping him in the tournament.

An interesting chopped pot

Aaron Belardo moved all in preflop and was called by Vito Masi. Aaron was in bad shape with [Ac][5s] against [Ah][Kh], but he had a glimmer of hope on the [9d][4h][2h] flop as he picked up a gutshot to go with his live five, as long as it wasn't a heart. The turn was the [5c], giving Aaron the best hand, but he still had to dodge hearts. The river was the [3d], and Aaron clapped his hands, thinking he had won. But instead, both players had rivered the wheel and would chop the pot.

Chris MacNeil doubles through Dan Castoria

Chris MacNeil was all in preflop holding [7d][7c] against Dan Castoria's [As][Ah].  Chris put his two index fingers in the air and asked for his one time, and his one time came when the flop fell [9c][7h][Jc]. The [2s] turn and [6d] river changed nothing, and Chris MaCNeil will double up.

8th Place: Moshe Dahan ($2,286)

Moshe Dahan was all in preflop holding ace eight and was up against his opponent's king queen. The J-T-x flop meant Moshe had a lot of outs to dodge, and the ace on the turn meant he was drawing dead. Moshe will collect $2,286 for his 8th place finish today.

9th Place: Glen Sibelius ($1,778)

At 15,000/30,000 blinds, Glen Sibelius moved all from middle position for 190,000. Vito Masi moved all in over the top for 290,000, and everyone else folded to Aaron Belardo in the big blind. After a brief think, he made the call, having both players covered:

Glen [Kh][Qs]
Vito [Jd][Jc]
Aaron [Ah][Qh]

The board ran out [8h][2c][Ts][Td][3s], leaving the jacks in front. Glen will be eliminated in 9th for $1,778, while Vito will almost triple up.

10th Place: She Lok Wong ($1,283)

She Lok Wong has been eliminated in 10th place when his [6s][5c] was unable to overcome Dan Castoria's [As][Ts].  The board ran out [3s][2h][Ac][8h][6h], and She Lok will collect $1,283 for his efforts.
