Two Second Places for One

Posted 2012-06-20 GMT-6 • Level 29: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

We are now heads up between Samuel Gerber and Max Steinberg. Neither player possesses a World Series of Poker bracelet, but that is about to change. Another thing both players have in common is that they have both been runner ups in 2010 WSOP events.

Samuel Gerber came in second in 2010's Event #16: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em / Six Handed, and Max Steinberg came in second in 2010's Event #8: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em.

Once reaching heads up play both players teased each other about their second place finishes and wished each other good luck.

Gerber Doubles Through Stout...Again

Posted 2012-06-20 GMT-6

Action began on Max Steinberg, who raised to 170,000 from the button. Matt Stout re-raised to 425,000 from the small blind and Samuel Gerber pushed all in for about 2.2 million from the big. Steinberg tanked, but eventually landed on a fold and Stout snap-called to put Gerber at risk.

Gerber: {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
Stout: {A-Spades}{K-Spades}

The flop brought {10-Spades}{6-Hearts}{J-Spades}, giving Stout a royal flush draw and a plethora of outs to improve. However, the {3-Hearts} turn and {9-Hearts} river bricked out for Stout, who couldn't help but shout, "God!" in frustration.

Stout is crippled following the hand with just 400,000.
