Joe Heinzmann - Pictured Here in Event #2

Flight: C
Level:  10
Blinds: 400/800
Ante: 100
Players Remaining: 243

Joe Heinzmann raises to 1,800 from under the gun.  A player in middle position calls, as does the big blind.

The flop comes A♣106. The big blind and Heinzmann both check, and the player in middle position bets 3,000.  Both players call.

The turn is the J♠. The big blind and Heinzmann both check again, and the player in middle position bets 4,100.  The big blind shoves his remaining 11,000 into the middle, and Heizmann calls.  The middle position player pauses before announcing that he is all in, having both players covered, and Heinzmann calls for his remaining 49,500.

Heinzmann: AA♠ (set of aces)
Big Blind: 6♣6♠ (set of sixes)
Middle Position: A10♣ (two pair)

The 9 river does not change the hand, and the big blind is eliminated from play, while Heinzmann doubles through the middle position player.

Joe Heinzmann - 100,000

Event #1B - Quads vs. Straight Flush for Joe Reddick and Eric Siegel

According to Eric Siegel and Joe Reddick they played a very interesting hand right before the last break.

Siegel started the hand with around 45,000 and Reddick started with around starting stack (20,000). Reddick had raised under the gun and Siegel called.

The flop came 5♣3♣2♣. Reddick bet 3,000, Siegel raised to 8,500, and Reddick shoved all in. Siegel called and the players tabled their hands.

Reddick had flopped a flush draw holding A♣Q and Siegel flopped a set of threes holding 33

The turn was the 3♠ giving Siegel quads threes and seemingly the win, but the 4♣ river changed everything giving Reddick a straight flush, and he was awarded a double through Siegel.

Joe Reddick - 43,000
Eric Siegel - 20,000
