Event #4 $230 NLH Prize Pool & Payouts

Event #4 $230 NLH received 144 entries, creating a $27,935 prize pool. The top 15 players will be in the money, with a mincash worth $558. Here are the full payouts:

1st Place: $7,487
2nd Place: $4,889
3rd Place: $3,268
4th Place: $2,430
5th Place: $1,844
6th Place: $1,509
7th Place: $1,229
8th Place: $978
9th Place: $785
10th-12th Place: $614
13th-15th Place: $558

1st Place: Brian Altman ($84,208)

Brian Altman had the button, but Lou Giampa acted out of turn by declaring all in. Brian elected to limp, and it was ruled that Lou's all in would stand. Brian made the call.

Brian [Ks][Qd]
Lou [Jd][Tc]

Lou had two live cards, but he failed to hit on the [4h][6s][5s][2c][2s] board, keeping Brian's king high in front. Lou will be eliminated in 2nd place, good for $54,109.

Brian Altman is the winner of Event #1 $600 NLH, taking home $84,208, the title, and the trophy. Congratulations, Brian!

3rd Place: Ben Nakhoul ($38,368)

Ben Nakhoul was all in preflop holding [As][2d] and was up against Brian Altman's [Js][Jc]. Ben didn't hit his ace, but he was still live on the [8s][5d][5c]. Unfortunately, Brian continued to run hot as the [Jd] hit the turn to give him an unbeatable full house. The [4s] river fell, and Ben will be eliminated in 3rd place, good for $38,368.

4th Place: Don Fisher ($27,054)

Brian Altman opened the pot and snap called after Don Fisher moved all in. Don was caught with his [Kh][8h] but had two live cards against Brian's [As][Jh]. The [Ac][Qh][7c] flop left Don drawing thin, and the [5s] turn sealed his fate. When the meaningless [Ah] hit the river, Don hit the payout desk to collect his $27,054 for his 4th place finish.

Lou Giampa doubles through Ben Nakhoul

Lou Giampa was all in preflop for 1,700,000 holding [As][Jc] and would need some help as he ran into Ben Nakhoul's [Ad][Qc]. He got the help he needed on the [Ac][Jh][6s] flop, and the [2d] turn and [9c] river kept Lou's two pair in front, doubling him up.

Updated chip counts at the break

The final four players are now on a 15 minute break. Here are updated chip counts in seat order as the blinds head to 60,000/120,000 with a 20,000 ante:

Brian Altman - 12,260,000
Don Fisher - 2,505,000
Lou Giampa - 1,880,000
Ben Nakhoul - 2,905,000

Ben Nakhoul doubles through Brian Altman

Ben Nakhoul was all in preflop for 1,320,000 holding [As][6h] and was up against the [Qd][Qc] of Brian Altman. Ben asked the dealer for an ace on the flop, and the dealer obliged with the [2h][Kh][Ah] flop. Brian had just one out to knock out Ben, but the [3c] turn and [Jh] river wasn't it. Ben will double up to stay alive, while Brian still has a healthy 9,000,000 in chips.

5th Place: John Gilmartin ($20,906)

John Gilmartin was all in preflop holding [Ac][9d] and was up against Brian Altman's [Ah][6s]. The [8s][2d][Qs] flop changed nothing, but the [8h] on the turn meant that the two would chop half of the time. The [9c] was a good river card for John, as his hand held up for a full double.

A few hands later, John was all in again against Brian, this time with [Ts][Tc] against Brian's [Ah][Ks]. John's tens were good on the [4d][6d][4s] flop, and the [7c] turn changed nothing. But the [Kd] spiked on the river to give Brian the winning pair.

John will exit this tournament in 5th place, good for $20,906.

Lou Giampa doubles through John Gilmartin

Lou Giampa was all in for 1,630,000 holding [Ad][Jh] and was up against John Gilmartin's [As][Kh]. The [7s][Tc][5h] flop was no help for Lou, but the [9h] turn gave him a gutshot to go with his live jack. The [8d] river was just what he was looking for, sending more than half of John's stack over to Lou.

6th Place: David Carleton ($16,970)

David Carleton was all in preflop holding [Kc][Qh] and was up against the [Ad][Qd] of Brian Altman. The [9d][Jh][9s][Ac][Jc] board didn't improve David's hand, and he will exit the tournament in 6th place. He will collect $16,970 for his efforts.

Updated chip counts at the break

The final six players are now on their first official break of the day. Here are updated chip counts in seat order:

Brian Altman - 8,045,000
John Gilmartin - 2,190,000
Don Fisher - 5,440,000
David Carleton - 1,980,000
Lou Giampa - 710,000
Ben Nakhoul - 1,705,000

Here are the remaining prizes left to play for:

1st Place: $84,208
2nd Place: $54,109
3rd Place: $38,368
4th Place: $27,054
5th Place: $20,906
6th Place: $16,970    

7th Place: Vic Amereno ($13,773)

Vic Amereno was all in preflop holding [As][Kh] and was up against the [Js][Jd] of Brian Altman. The [Qh][Th][Qs] flop was no help to Vic, nor was the [2h] turn or [2c] river. Brian's two pair will win the pot, sending Vic to the rail in 7th place. He will collect $13,773 for his efforts.

Don Fisher is the chip leader

Don Fisher has taken over a commanding chip lead. He now sits on around 6,150,000, which is so many physical chips that tournament staff are standing by to color some of those chips up. With 7 players remaining, Don has approximately a third of the chips in play. 

8th Place: Raymond Moseman ($10,822)

At 30,000/60,000 blinds, Raymond Moseman moved all in for around 3,000,000 and Don Fisher moved all in over the top for just a bit more. This time Don held [As][Ac] against Raymond's [6h][6c]. The [Ac][7h][9c][4h][Qc] board gave Don the winning hand, and once the stacks were counted down to confirm, Raymond was declared our 8th place finisher. He will collect $10,822 for his efforts today.

David Carleton doubles through John Gilmartin

David Carleton opened the pot and action folded to John Gilmartin in the big blind who moved all in. David snap called and tabled his [As][Ac], which coolered John's A-K. The [5s][4c][9h][6d][Kd] kept David's aces in front, unlike last night when aces chopped with A-K. David will double up to 2,800,000 while John will be knocked down to 2,250,000.

9th Place: Luis Vazquez ($8,166)

Luis Vazquez was all in preflop holding [Kh][Jd] and was called by Don Fisher holding [Ad][Kd]. Luis would need to get lucky, but the [Qs][Qc][Kc] left him drawing thin to a chop. The [2s] turn changed nothing, and the [5c] river meant Luis would be our 9th place finisher. He will collect $8,166 for his efforts.

Don Fisher doubles through Vic Amereno

Don Fisher was all in preflop and Vic Amereno made the call. It was another flip as Don held [Ah][Qs] to Vic's [Jh][Jc]. The [5h][As][6d] flop put Don in front, and no jack came on the [3h] turn or [Tc] river.

Don's stack was counted down to 855,000, and after paying off the allin, Vic was down to 255,000. Vic moved his chips in the very next hand and Don called him from the small blind. Vic had the best hand again with K-6 to Don's T-9, and the king high held up to double Vic up to just under 600,000.

10th Place: James Lex ($6,198)

James Lex was all in preflop and John Gilmartin made the call. James was flipping for his tournament life with [Ad][Qc] against John's [Js][Jc]. The board ran out [Tc][Kh][Ts][9c][5h] to keep the jacks in front, and James will be eliminated in 10th place. He will earn $6,198 for his efforts.

11th Place: Frankie Flowers ($6,198)

On one of the first hands of Day 3, Frankie Flowers called Raymond Moseman's all in with ace jack. Raymond held [4h][4d] and hit a set on the [4c][Qh][Th] flop. Frankie did hold a gutshot, but Raymond made a full house on the [Td] turn, leaving Frankie drawing dead. The meaningless [7s] hit the river, and Frankie will be eliminated in 11th place. He will collect $6,198 for his efforts.
