5-way deal made in Event #8

The final five players in Event #8 have agreed to a deal to modify the payouts. Here are the new payouts:

1st Place: $12,463
2nd Place: $8,500
3rd Place: $5,300
4th Place: $5,300
5th Place: $5,300

6th Place: Leonard Rinas ($2,785)


7th Place: Scott Ricci ($2,262)


8th Place: Neil Small ($1,856)


Neil Small was all in preflop holding [Js][Jd] and was flipping against Jason Adams's [Ad][Kc]. Neil's jacks were in front all the way to the river, but Jason hit an ace to send Neil to the rail in 8th place, good for $1,856.

Erik Torgersen doubles through Leonard Rinas


From the button, Erik Torgersen moved all in and was called by Leonard Rinas in the small blind. It was a race as Erik held pocket eights against ace ten. No ace or ten came on board and Erik will double up. 

9th Place: Marc DeCuffa ($1,451)

10th Place: Lou Pito ($1,015)


On the first hand of the final table, Erik Torgersen raised to 75,000 at 15,000/30,000 blinds. Lou Pito moved all in from the big blind for 415,000 and Erik made the call.

Erik [Ac][4c]
Lou [7h][7d]

The [5d][9d][9s] flop was safe for Lou, and the [Qh] meant he was only dodging a queen or an ace on the river. Erik yelled, "Queen!" as the dealer dealt the [Qc], counterfitting Lou's pocket pair and eliminating him in 10th place. Lou will earn $1,015 for his efforts today.

Final table reached in Event #8 $300 NLH Big Stack


Jason Staalasen was all in under the gun and action folded around to the big blind who called. Jason was in great shape to double up with [Qs][Qh] against the big blind's [Ac][Qc] as another player said he had folded an ace. Unfortunately for Jason, the flop fell [9d][Jh][Ad], giving his opponent a pair of aces. The [2h] turn and [Kd] river were no help for Jason, and he will exit this tournament in 11th place.

With Jason's elimination, we are now down to the final 10 players. Chip counts and seating assignments will be posted shortly.
