1st Place: Marty Gorenc ($45,311)

Matt Wantman was all in preflop with [7s][7d] against Marty Gorenc's [Ah][Jc]. The [Qd][Jh][Kc] flop favored Marty, and Matt would need a seven to survive. The [Ks] turn changed nothing, and the [8s] meant Marty Gorenc has won Event #10 $1,650 Championship. He will collect $45,311, the title, and the trophy. Congratulations, Marty!

2nd Place: Matt Wantman ($50,000)

Matt Wantman doubles up to get back to even

At the top of the level, Marty Gorenc and Matt Wantman were nearly even in chips. In the last half hour, Marty grinded Matt down to just over a million, and Matt got those chips in preflop against Marty. Matt had the advantage with [Th][Td] against Marty's [4h][4d]. There were no shenanigans as the board ran out [9c][3s][Jd][2c][7d], doubling up Matt to 2,340,000.

Heads up chip counts at the end of Level 28

For most of Level 28, we have seen Marty Gorenc and Matt Wantman battle back and forth. There hasn't been an all in yet.

The players have decided to lower the blind levels to 30 minutes after this level.

Here are current chip counts:
Matt - 2,900,000
Marty - 2,200,000

3rd Place: Je Wook Oh ($38,500)

On a [8d][7d][Js] flop, Je Wook Oh was all in with [6d][3d] and was up against Marty Gorenc's [Qh][Jh]. Je Wook would need a diamond or running cards to survive, but the turn fell the [Ac]. The river landed the [7s], keeping Marty's hand in front. Je Wook will exit this tournament in 3rd place, good for $38,500.

3-way deal made

The final 3 players have agreed to a deal. The three players are taking the following prize money, and playing for the trophy and an additional $4,817 in prize money.

Matt Wantman: $50,000
Marty Gorenc: $40,500
Je Wook Oh: $38,500

4th Place: Ralph Massey ($20,777)

Ralph Massey was all in preflop holding [Jh][Jc] and was flipping with Marty Gorenc's [Ad][Kd]. The [5h][Ks][3h] flop put Marty in the lead, and Ralph would need a jack to survive. The [Kc] changed nothing, and the [Th] river meant Ralph Massey would be our 4th place finisher. He will take home $20,777 for his efforts.

Marty Gorenc doubles through Ralph Massey

At 12,000/24,000 blinds with a 4,000 ante, Ralph Massey opened from under the gun to 52,000. On his left, Marty Gorenc 3-bet to 125,000, and action folded back to Ralph. After asking how much Marty started the hand with, Ralph moved all in and Marty snap-called.

Ralph [Ad][Jd]
Marty [Ac][Qd]

Ralph would need to catch a jack to knock Marty out in 4th place. The [9d][9c][Th] flop gave Ralph some chop outs, and the [Qh] on the turn meant he could only catch an eight or a king to win the pot. The river was a blank, and Marty's top two pair was enough to double up.

His stack was counted down, and Marty had 679,000 total, meaning he will double up to over 1,300,000. Meanwhile, Ralph is knocked down to 360,000.

Je Wook Oh doubles through Matt Wantman

Je Wook Oh moved all in preflop from the button and Matt Wantman made the call from the small blind. Ralph Massey folded his big blind, and the two exposed their hands:

Je Wook [Kd][Ts]
Matt [Qs][Qc]

The [5d][8c][6s] flop was no help for Je Wook, but the [Ks] turn was just what he needed. Je Wook needed to avoid a queen on the river, and the [Ad] fell to secure him the doubleup

Chip counts at the break

Players are now on a 20 minute break. Here are updated chip counts for the final 4 in seat order:

Ralph Massey - 1,012,000
Marty Gorenc - 1,425,000
Je Wook Oh - 742,000
Matt Wantman - 1,914,000

5th Place: Dominik Pelli ($15,831)

Dominik Pelli moved all in from the button and Je Wook Oh made the call from the small blind. Matt Wantman folded his big blind and the cards were exposed:

Dominik [Tc][3h]
Je Wook [As][9d]

Dominik was making a move and would need to get lucky, but he did have two live cards. The [Jc][Qc][7d][Jd][8c] board brought him no help, though, so he will exit the tournament in 5th place. Dominik collects $15,831 for his efforts today.

6th Place: Kevin Lynch ($12,862)

Kevin Lynch was all in preflop holding [Ks][Kc] and was up against the [As][7s] of Ralph Massey. The [8h][Td][Ts] flop was safe for Kevin, but the [Ac] turn spelled disaster for him. Kevin would need one of the two remaining kings on the river to survive, but the dealer placed the [Th] on the river to give Ralph the winning hand of tens full of aces. Kevin will exit this tournament in 6th place, good for $12,862.

7th Place: Jonathan Lewis ($10,389)

Jonathan Lewis was all in preflop with [2s][2d] and was up against Matt Wantman's [Ah][Jc]. The [Qc][Js][Kc] flop left Jonathan in bad shape, and the [6c] turn left him one step closer to elimination. The [9c] river meant the pair of jacks would be the best hand, and Jonathan Lewis will exit this tournament in 7th place. He will collect $10,389 for his efforts.

Matt Wantman - 1,230,000

8th Place: Peter Everett ($8,409)

On a [8h][4h][Ac] flop, Peter Everett was all in against Je Wook Oh. Peter had top pair with his [Ad][Jc], but was outflopped by Je Wook's [As][4s]. Looking for a jack, the turn came the [2s] and the river the [3d], eliminating Peter in 8th place. He will collect $8,409 for his efforts. 

Dominik Pelli doubles through Peter Everett

Dominik Pelli was all in preflop holding [8s][8c] and was in bad shape against Peter Everett's [Td][Tc]. The [Qc][8h][4h] flop turned the tables, almost guaranteeing Dominik a doubleup. The [5s] turn changed nothing, and now Dominik was hoping it wouldn't be another bad river at this final table. The [Ah] landed on the river, giving Dominik the doubleup. He now sits on over 300,000.

9th Place: Welther Marmol ($6,685)

On a [3d][5s][9s] flop, Welther Marmol got the last of his chips in holding [9c][6h] against his opponent's [Ac][4c]. Welther's top pair held on the [Tc], but the [Ah] on the river was another bad river for Welther. He will exit this tournament in 9th place, good for $6,685.

Marty Gorenc doubles through Welther Marmol

Our first all in of the day came with Marty Gorenc getting his chips in with [Ah][Ad] against the [Jh][Jc] of Welther Marmol. The [Kh][Jd][Td] was a disaster flop for Marty, as he was outflopped and was now drawing to six outs. The [2c] turn changed nothing, but the [Ac] river delivered some poker justice. The best hand preflop held up, and Marty will double up to over 900,000.

Championship final table is under way
