Mark Dickstein doubles through David Harting

There has been a lot of action in this heads up match, but for over an hour we hadn't seen an all in and a call. We finally broke that streak, with a short stacked Mark Dickstein taking his [As][3h] up against David Harting's [Qd][Jd]. The flop fell [3d][Ac][5h], leaving David drawing to runner-runner. The [Th] turn gave David a gutshot, but the [Qh] gave him a useless pair of queens. Mark will double up to 1,200,000.

3rd Place: Dan Chalifour ($30,000)

Dan Chalifour was all in preflop holding [Ac][5d] and was up against the [Ah][Jd] of David Harting. The board ran out [Qh][3c][Tc][Td][8d] and David's ace-jack high will hold up. Dan will exit this tournament in 3rd place, good for $30,000.

3-handed chip counts at the break, David Harting leads

David Harting is the chip leader 3-handed
The final 3 players in Event #11 $1,650 NLH are now on a break. When they return, blinds will be 10,000/20,000 with a 3,000 ante. Here are updated chip counts:

David Harting - 1,547,000
Mark Dickstein - 1,096,000
Dan Chalifour - 1,035,000

Here are the latest deal for the final 3 spots:

1st Place: $41,069
2nd Place: $36,700
3rd Place: $30,000

4th Place: Gerald Hillard ($25,000)

On a [6s][9c][2h] flop, Gerald Hiller moved all in against David Harting, and David said, "I think you have me outkicked but I have to call." David's [9h][8h] was not outkicked, but Gerald was drawing live with his [7c][6d]. The [Ad] turn and [5h] river kept David's pair of nines in front, and Gerald will be eliminated in 4th place. He will earn $25,000 for his efforts.

David Harting doubles through Gerald Hillard

On a [Js][6h][2s][9d] board, David Harting moved all in over the top of Gerald Hiller's bet. Gerald went into the tank and eventually made the call, holding pocket eights. Unfortunately for him, he was drawing dead as David had already turned a set of nines. The meaningless river hit, and now David sits on 1,500,000.

4-way deal made

The final four have agreed to flatten the payouts. Here are the modified payouts:

1st Place: $45,069
2nd Place: $35,000
3rd Place: $27,700
4th Place: $25,000

5th Place: James Campbell ($13,596)

At 6,000/12,000 blinds, James Campbell raised under the gun to 26,000 and Gerald Hillard reraised to 121,000 from the small blind. James responded with a 4-bet shove, and Gerald hesitantly made the call.

James [Ac][Qc]
Gerald [Js][Jd]

It was a flip and we weren't sure who's tournament life was at stake, yet. The dealer fanned the [4d][5d][2s] flopped, and placed the [4s] on the turn. James half-heartedly asked for an ace on the river, but the dealer did not oblige, instead delivering the [7c]. The stacks were counted down, and Gerald had James outchipped, so he will be our 5th place finisher. James will earn $13,596 for his efforts.

Updated chip counts at dinner break

6th Place: Mike Hollenberg ($11,046)

At 5,000/10,000 blinds, Mike Hollenberg was all in preflop for 162,000 and was called by Mark Dickstein. Right behind him, Dan Chalifour moved all in over the top, having Mark covered. Action folded back to Mark, who called and proudly flipped over [As][Ac]. It was a cooler as Dan held [Kd][Kc] and meanwhile Mike had [7s][7h]. No one hit a set on the [Jc][5d][Th][8s][Qc] board, and Mike will be eliminated in 6th place, good for $11,046. Mark's stack was counted down to 579,000, so he will more than double up, while Dan will be knocked down to 444,000.

7th Place: Julian Sacks ($8,922)

Julian Sacks raised preflop and was called in two spots. The [4s][4c][Ac] flop saw Gerald Hillard check call Julian's continuation bet to see a [6s] turn. Gerald now elected to bet out a stack of red, 100,000. With a sigh, Julian put his last 130,000 in the pot, which was quickly called. Julian held [Ad][Jc] for top pair, but Gerald had outflopped him with [4d][2h]. No miracle ace hit the river, and Julian will be eliminated in 7th place for $8,922.

Event #13 $300 Stud/8 Prize Pool & Payouts

On a river reading [2s][Th][9c][3s][Jd], Ed O'Connell was all in with jack ten, good for top two pair. Unfortunately for him, Dan Chalifour rivered the nuts with [Kh][Qh]. Ed will be eliminated in 8th place, good for $7,223.

9th Place: Ross Mallor ($5,739)

At 4,000/8,000 blinds, James Campbell opened to 20,000 under the gun and was called by Ross Mallor in middle position and one other player. James bet 33,000 on the [6s][6h][5s] flop, and Ross moved all in for 165,000. Action folded back to James, who took off his headphones to evaluate the situation. He eventually called, tabling [Js][Jd] which was behind Ross's [Ad][Ac]. The [Qs] gave James a backdoor flush draw to go with his preexisting two outs, and the [7s] fell to complete that flush. Ross came around the table to get a better look at the board, not believing he was eliminated in 9th place. James could only offer him the conciliation, "Sorry, I'm the worst." Ross will earn $5,739 for his efforts.

10th Place: Matthes Silberzweig ($4,036)

Matthes Silberzweig has been eliminated when [Jc][Tc] failed to improve against his opponent's [As][Jh]. The board ran out [8d][Ah][5s][6s][7d] to send Matthes to the rail in 10th place, good for $4,036.

Konstantinos will earn $3,611 for his 13th place finish here today.

Ross Mallor doubles through Jason Calnan

Jason Calnan opened for a raise before Ross Malor moved all in from the small blind. Jason snap called, and the two revealed their hands:

Jason [Kh][Qh]
Ross [As][Jd]

The board ran out a pure [Ts][9d][9s][9c][5h], and ace high will be the best hand. Ross will double up to 97,000.

14th Place: Mike Nye ($3,611)

At 2,500/5,000 blinds, Mike Nye was all in preflop for 30,500 holding [3s][3d] and was called by Gerald Hillard holding [9d][8c]. The [7c][2s][Kc] was safe for Mike, but the [Qc] turn opened up a slew of outs for Gerald. Much to Mike's chagrin, the river landed [Ac], giving Gerald the winning flush. Mike will be eliminated in 14th place, good for $3,611.

15th Place: Aaron Loew ($3,611)

16th Place: Rohan Long ($3,398)

17th Place: Jimmy Nunez ($3,398)

Steve Happas has been eliminated

From under the gun, Steve Happas moved all in and was called in two spots. The dealer spread the [Qc][As][Jc] flop, and his first opponent bet the other out of the pot. Steve received the bad news that his [Ah][Ks] had been outflopped by [Ad][Qd], but he still had seven outs to survive and triple up. The [2c] turn changed nothing, and the [2s] river meant Steve would be eliminated in the last level of Day 1.
