Mikhail Timoshin - 10th place

Mikhail Timoshin opened a recent hand from under the gun making it 32,000 to anyone who wanted to see a flop. Dylan Hortin in the big blind made the call.

The flop came {5-Spades}{3-Clubs}{2-Spades} and Hortin checked to the bettor. Timoshin fired off 35,000 and the bigger stacked Hortin moved all in. Timoshin made the call and was at risk.

Hortin: {4-Diamonds}{4-Spades}
Timoshin: {10-Spades}{9-Spades}

Timoshin was going to need any spade, any nine, or any ten to stay alive. The {7-Diamonds} on the turn was no help, and neither was the {6-Diamonds} on the river. Timoshin was eliminated and Hortin has now crossed the one million mark with about 1,300,000.

Marzicola's Mountain

Posted 2012-06-19 GMT-6

The flop read {2-Hearts}{k-Spades}{A-Hearts}prompting Joseph Marzicola to check-raise his opponent Matt Stout (who had bet 36,000), making it 75,000 to see a turn. Stout made the call and was granted access to the {5-Diamonds} on the turn. It was here that Marzicola fired out 100,000. Stout again made the call.

The {j-Clubs} on the river slowed the aggressive Marzicola down, and we saw him check. Stout however jumped on the opportunity and bet out 200,000. Marzicola made the call.

Stout: {Q-Hearts}{9-Hearts}
Marzicola: {A-Spades}{j-Hearts}

Stout missed his flush draw and only held queen high, while Marzicola had a superior hand in two-pair aces and jacks.

Battle of the Bigs

Posted 2012-06-19 GMT-6

Max Steinberg can't seem to avoid a pot and why should he, every pot he plays he seems to win. recently we caught him raising it up to 35,000 from the cut-off. Joseph Marzicola made the call from the button, as did Matt Stout from the small blind.

The flop came {6-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} prompting a check from Sout. Steinberg wasn't going to allow any checks and bet out 50,000. Marzicola raised and made it 150,000. Stout folded and Steinberg made the call.

The {8-Diamonds} on the turn slowed Steinberg down and he checked. Marzicola however bet out, making it 250,000. Steinberg made the call and both players were witness to the {a-Diamonds} on the river. Both players thought enough betting had taken place and they knuckled for checks.

Marzicola flipped over {A-Hearts}{k-Spades} for top two pair and that was enough to take it down.

Joseph Marzicola 1,310,000 400,000 pos

Double for Laplante

Posted 2012-06-19 GMT-6

Ryan Laplante opened for 54,000 from the cut-off and immediately faced an all in raise from Bradley Kopelson on the button. The blinds folded and action was back on the shorter stacked Laplante who made the call for his remaining 239,000.

Kopelson: {A-Spades}{j-Spades}
Laplante: {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}

The board came {K-Hearts}{6-Spades}{5-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{6-Hearts} and Laplante's aces were best. Kopelson was forced to send over a chunk of his stack because his ace jack came up short and now sits around 330,000.
