Bubble Burst in Event #6 ($250 NLH Seniors)

Blinds= 5,000/10,000. Ante= 1,000

John Griffin raises to 40,000 from under the gun.  Action folds to the player on the button who shoves all in for 121,000 total.  The small blind folds, and the big blind goes into the tank.  After three minutes of thinking about it, the big blind folds his hand. Action is now back on Griffin who also goes into the tank. After a minute passes Griffin moves the chips forward to call.

Griffin: [7c][7s]
Button: [ac][qd]

"I had you crushed," the player in the big blind says to the Button.  "I had ace king."

The board runs out [8d][6h][6d][6s][4s], sending the player on the button to the rail, and chipping Griffin up to 400,000. 

All remaining players are now in the money.

Aleksey Filatov Takes From Carlos Gio Solerti (Event #7 $250 PLO HIGH)

Scott Butler raises to 2,400 from under the gun.  Aleksey Filatov pots to 8,700 in the hijack.  Action folds to Carlos "Gio" Solerti in the small blind who pots it to 29,400.  Bulter folds, and Filatov goes into the tank. 

Solerti says to Filatov, "You can fold man.  Just let it go, I will show you, I have a huge hand."  Filatov responds, "I have a huge hand, I know what you have."  Solerti quickly says, "No, no you don't man. Just let it go." 

After another minute of thinking, Filatov calls. 

The flop comes [qh][js][6c].  Both players check. 

Both players again check when the turn comes the [qc].

When the [4d] comes on the river. Filatov bets 20,000.  Solerti pauses, and then throws in the 20,000 to call. 

Filatov turns over [kh][ks][4c][4h], having hit a full house on the river. 

"Come on man, how are you calling pre?  You hit a two outer?  You never fold. How did you call pre?" Solerti questions as he turns over [kd][kc][ah][ac]. 

Solerti is now down to 66,000, and Filatov is by far the chip leader with just about 200,000 in chips.

Both blinds fold, Pura thinks for a moment before announcing pot (putting himself all in), and Solerti quickly calls. 

Pura: [js][10c][9h][5h] (trip nines)

Frank Sgambato Eliminated By Kurt Lombard (Event #6)

On a board reading [qc][6h][3s][3d][2c], Frank Sgambato shoves all in from early position.  Kurt Lombard, the player on the button, tanks for nearly a minute before moving his stack forward to call. 

Sgambato turns over [js][jc].  Lombard turns over [qs][qh] for a full house.  Sgambato asks, "What the heck are you waiting for?"  To which Lombard replies, "I just wanted to make sure." 

After a close count of chips, it's determined that Lombard has Sgambato covered. 

"Good hand," Sgambato says to Lombard before walking back over to the cage to rebuy.

Lombard is now sitting with just under 50,000 in chips. 

Full House is Good for Kurt Lombard
