Mik Santos takes the chip lead

We caught up to a [Th][4h][9c][4c] to see Welther Marmol moving all in and Mik Santos making the call for his tournament life with [As][Ad]. Welther could only show [9h][2d], which wasn't able to improve on the [Qc] river. Mik's stack was counted down to 1,290,000, and he will double through Welther to take the chip lead four handed.

Mik Santos doubles through Floyd Overton

In a blind vs. blind battle, Mik Santos was all in and flipping with [9s][9d] against Floyd Overton's [Ad][Qd]. The [8s][4s][2d] kept the nines in front, but the [Td] turn opened up a slew of outs for Floyd. The [Kc] was not one of the cards Floyd wanted, and Mik will double up to 1,600,000.

5th Place: Mike Nye ($10,000)

From the cutoff, Mike Nye moved all in and was called by Elvis Reyes in the big blind. Mike's [Ac][4s] was dominated by Elvis's [As][Js], but the [5s][2s][Th] flop did give Mike six outs. The [5d] turn gave Mike chop outs as well, but the [Kc] river was not one of them. Mike will exit this tournament in 5th place, good for $10,000.

Floyd Overton doubles through Mike Nye with quads

From the button, Mike Nye moved all in for 750,000 and Mik Santos took his time before folding his small blind. Floyd Overton had 180,000 total and was priced in to the call at 30,000/60,000 blinds.

Mike [Ah][2s]
Floyd [8h][6h]

Mik showed that he had folded the best hand, ace-jack, before the dealer spread the [6c][Ad][6d] flop. Before the players could react to the flop, the dealer had placed the [6s] on the turn to give Floyd quad sixes. He will double through Mike Nye, who had said that he hadn't looked at his second card when he moved all in.

Had Mik have called, he would have won the much larger side pot and eliminated Mike while tripling up Floyd.

6th Place: Thomas Russel ($10,000)

Thomas Russel and Welther Marmol saw a [8h][Kd][5h] flop, and the chips got in faster than you can imagine. Thomas had flopped two pair with his [Ks][5d] but was up against the Welther's straight flush draw with his [7h][6h]. Welther wasted no time hitting his draw when the turn fell [4s]. Thomas would need to make a full house to survive, but the [8c] river paired the wrong board card. Thomas will exit this tournament in 10th place, good for $10,000.

7th Place: Chris Waisnor ($10,000)

From middle position, Chris Waisnor moved all in and was called by Mik Santos in the small blind. It was a race with Chris's [Ah][Jh] against Mik's [8h][8c]. The board ran out [Kh][2d][6c][2c][5h] to send Chris to the rail in 7th place, good for $10,000.

Chris was the short stack when the 7-way chop was made, so he possibly benefited the most from the deal.

7-way deal made

The final 7 players in Event #6 $400 NLH have agreed to a deal to each take $10,000 and pay for the remaining $7,654 and the trophy.

8th Place: James Campbell ($3,212)

James Campbell moved all in from the button and was called by Welther Marmol in the small blind. James's ace-eight was dominated by Welther's ace-ten, and James was unable to suck out on the superior hand. James will exit this tournament in a frustrating 8th place finish, collecting $3,212 for his efforts.

Mik Santos doubles through Elvis Reyes

Mik Santos was all in on a [Ac][9c][7c] flop holding [8c][3c] and was up against Elvis Reyes, who was very live with his [9h][9d]. The [2d] turn changed nothing, nor did the [3s] river. Mik had managed to dodge all of Elvis's outs and earned himself a double up.

9th Place: Kyle Carey ($2,492)

Kyle Carey was all in for his last chips with [Ks][Qd] and ran into the [Kh][Kc] of Floyd Overton. The flop brought a sweat as it fell [Qc][8c][7h], but neither the [7c] turn or [8d] river could save Kyle's tournament life. He will exit the tournament in 9th place good for $2,492.

10th Place: Elijah Matsan ($1,878)

The final table started off with a bit of a bang as Elijah Matsan was all in preflop holding [Jh][Jc] against Mik Santos's [Qd][Qc]. Elikah would get lucky and flop a set on the [Td][Kc][Jd] flop, but Mik still had ten outs to win. The [2h] changed nothing, but the [Qs] river marked a cruel end to Elijah's tournament. While he did get it in behind, he was teased with flopping the best hand only to end up losing. Elijah will exit this tournament in 10th place, good for $1,878.

Final table reached

With the elimination of our 11th place finisher, Event #6 $400 NLH has reached the final table. The last 10 players are drawing for seats, and play will resume shortly.

James Campbell runs bad in a big all in

James Campbell had his opponent all in and in bad shape with [As][Ts] against James's pocket jacks. The [Ac][9c][2d] flop was bad news for James, and the [4c] turn and [Td] river failed to produce a needed jack.  James will ship over 624,000 to his opponent, or approximately half of his stack.

Final two tables reached

We are down to the final 18 players in Event #6 $400 NLH, which means we have just completed a full redraw of the field. Blinds are now 8,000/16,000 with a 2,000 ante.

Floyd Overton

Bobby Ferdinand has been eliminated
