Chip counts at the break

The final four players are now on a break. When they return, blinds will be 40,000/80,000 with a 10,000 ante. Here are updated chip counts in seat order:

William Davis Jr. - 2,530,000
Chris Leong - 1,400,000
Don Russell - 1,075,000
Michael Labarge - 600,000

Here are the remaining prizes to be played for:

1st Place: $11,909
2nd Place: $7,663
3rd Place: $4,858
4th Place: $3,891

5th Place: James Rafferty ($2,947)

James Rafferty was all in preflop holding ace-deuce and was up against his opponent's pocket nines. A nine hit the flop to leave James drawing to a runner-runner straight, but he failed to hit his miracle cards. James will be eliminated in 5th place, and will collect $2,947 for his efforts.

6th Place: Alexander Morgovsky ($2,335)

Alexander Morgovsky was all in from UTG+1 and action folded to Chris Leong in the small blind. He thought about it for a bit, but decided to fold, eliciting a snap call from Don Russell in the big blind. Don turned over [Ad][Ks] which had Alexander's [Ac][Td] dominated. No ten fell on the [3h][6h][Qs][9c][8h] board, and Alexander will be eliminated in 6th place. He will collect $2,335 for his efforts.

7th Place: Suad Kantarevic ($1,886)

Suad Kantarevic was all in holding pocket kings and was up against the ace-king of William Davis Jr. The Q-6-10 flop gave William a gutshot straight draw, but the 2 on the turn changed nothing. A jack hit the river, however, to send Suad to the rail in 7th place, good for $1,886.

8th Place: James Cappacci ($1,533)

James Capacci was all in preflop holding pocket kings, but ran into Chris Leong's pocket aces. An ace fell on the flop to leave James drawing to runner-runner quads, but no miracle would come today. James will exit this tournament in 8th place, collecting $1,533 for his efforts.

9th Place: Jeffrey Glass ($1,232)

Jeffrey Glass moved all in and Michael Labarge moved all in over the top. Everyone else folded, and Jeffrey was given the bad news: his [Ad][Js] was outkicked by Michael's [Ah][Kd]. The [5s][2d][7d][As][Ks] did provide the suckout Jeffrey was looking for, and he will exit this tournament in 9th place, collecting $1,232 for his efforts.

10th Place: Brandon Gomeau ($848)

Suad Kantarevic opened the pot and James Cappacci reraised before action folded to Brandon Gomeau in the big blind. Brandon had more than half his chips in the blind and called all in, and Suad called James's raise as well. The flop fell [2c][5d][Qh] and James folded after Suad bet. Suad had [6d][6c], which had Brandon's [Ad][Jc] beat for now. The [7c] turn changed nothing, as did the [5c] river. Brandon will be the first casualty of this final table, taking home $848 for his 10th place finish.

1st Place: Brian Morgan ($19,173)

On the final hand of play, Mike Clemente was all in with [Ah][7h] against Brian Morgan's [Qh][Td]. The [2c][3d][5s] flop was good for Mike, but the [Qc] on the turn meant disaster. Mike would need to catch an ace to survive, but instead the [8c] hit the river. Mike Clemente would be eliminated in 2nd place, taking home $18,695 for his efforts.

Brian Morgan has won Event #5 $400 NLH, taking home $19,173, the title, and the trophy. Congratulations, Brian!
