Action started with Roland Israelashvili, and he made it two bets. Ben Landowski was on the button, and he put in a third bet. Kevin McGuinnes was in the small blind, and he made it four bets! Both IIsraelashvili and Landowski called, and the flop came down {q-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{4-Hearts}. McGuinness had just 24,000 left, and he bet the first 8,000 in the dark. Israelashvili raised, and Landowski went into the tank. After two minutes of thinking, he folded, and McGuinness committed the rest of his chips, saying "Let's rock and roll!" Israel called, and the cards were flipped.

Israelashvili: {q-Spades}{j-Clubs}
McGuinness: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}

Israelashvili was out in front, but McGuinness could still pair up to take the lead. The turn was the {8-Hearts}, and McGuinness was down to the river. It was the {9-Hearts}, and he was eliminated, while Israelashvili is now up to 240,000.

Jennifer Harman Eliminated in 18th Place ($8,130)

A short-stacked Jennifer Harman got her chips in preflop with {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs} and squaring off against Leonid Bilokur, who held {A-Spades}{K-Spades}. It was an old-fashioned flip, and one that didn't come down in Harman's favor as the flop fell {J-Clubs}{2-Spades}{K-Diamonds}. Bilokur paired his king to take a commanding lead, and Harman was left looking for a queen.

The {4-Spades} turn wasn't what she needed and neither was the {6-Spades} river. Bilokur ended up making a flush, which sent Harman home in 18th place with her first cash of the 2012 World Series of Poker.

Set of Fours Sends Dickerson to the Rail

We saw Jed Dickerson on his feet and shaking hands with Bruce Rosen, which was an indicator that he had been eliminated. Sure enough, we made our way over to see Dickerson with {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts} laid out in front of him, which was no good against Rosen's {4-}{4-}.

With Dickerson's elimination in 19th place, we're down to the final 18 players. That means it's time for a two-table redraw!

McGuinness Triples Up

Posted 2012-06-07 GMT-6

Kevin McGuinness was down to just 23,000, and he got it in the middle preflop against David Arsht and Lori Kirgan. Arsht and Kirgan checked down the board, which ran out {k-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{5-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}. Kirgan showed {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} high, and Arsht said he couldn't beat it. McGuiness tabled {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}, and that was good enough to take the pot down. After the hand, he is up to 69,000.

We came to the table as the turn was being dealt on a board that read {9-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}. Al Barbieri checked to his lone opponent Isaac Haxton, who fired out a bet. Barbieri check raised, and Haxton had a decision for all his chips. He made the call, and when the cards were flipped, Barbieri was well out in front.

Barbieri: {a-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}
Haxton: {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}

Haxton could only catch a diamond to survive, and the river brought the {9-Spades}. Haxton goes home in 20th place, while Barbieri is out chip leader with 450,000.

"Good Time for Aces"

Posted 2012-06-07 GMT-6

A short-stacked Jeff Weiss raised from middle position only to have Lori Kirgan reraise on the button. Both blinds got out of the way, Weiss put in another bet and Kirgan made the call, bringing about the {2-Hearts}{5-Spades}{6-Hearts} flop. Weiss bet, leaving himself just 3,000 behind, and Kirgan simply called. When the {5-Diamonds} turned, Weiss put in his last few chips and Lirgan called.


Weiss {A-Hearts}{A-Spades}
Kirgan {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}

Kirgan was left shaking her head as the {6-Clubs} appeared on the river, while Weiss smiled and said, "Good time for aces."

Woodin Binks The River To Double Up

Posted 2012-06-07 GMT-6

Jared Woodin got the rest of his short stack in preflop in the small blind, and Bruce Rosen called in the big blind. Woodin showed {10-Spades}{7-Clubs}, and Rosen was out in front with {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}. He stay out in front on the flop, {4-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{4-Spades}, and the turn, {6-Diamonds}. However, the {10-Clubs} hit the river, and Woodin secured the double up to 45,000. While Rosen lost the hand, he's still had a good day so far, as he's up to 225,000.
