Our official final table has been set with the elimination of Dylan Horton.

He opened to 16,000 from mid position before Layne Flack three-bet to 49,000 from the next seat. Horton responded by moving all-in for a little more than 300,000, and Flack called after giving it some consideration.

Horton: {j-Spades}{10-Spades}
Flack: {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}

The board ran {4-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{8-Clubs} to give Flack a set and a commanding lead moving forward.

There will be a short break before we start the official final table

Corson Collects Chips

Posted 2012-06-08 GMT-6

Jeff Madsen started out a recent hand by making it 14,000 preflop. Michael Corson thought that was too cheap and raised to 33,000. Adam Kagin on the button opted to call.

A {A-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} flop was spread out and action was on Corson who tapped the felt for a check. Kagin bet out 40,000 and Corson made the call.

A {6-Spades} on the turn brought two checks, but a {k-Clubs} on the river allowed for Corson to bet out 64,000. A bet Kagin did not want to see. After a few moments Kagin folded and Corson was awarded the pot.

Level 2 started


And Breath

The crazy raising action couldn't continue. The last ten minutes has seen a lot of blind stealing, and pots not making it beyond the flop. Most players are still trying to find their rhythm.

Flack Attack

Posted 2012-06-08 GMT-6

Think the action is going to slow down? Think again.

David Chase opened to 13,000 and was called in one spot before Layne Flack three-bet to 33,000. Pretty quickly Chase four-bet to 103,000. The player in between folded but Flack snap-shoved for 542,000. Chase thought for 20 seconds and called to put Flack at risk.

Flack: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}
Chase: {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

The board ran {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} to pair Flack's ace. We have a new chip leader.

Chasing Away Opponents

Posted 2012-06-08 GMT-6

Michael Corson started a recent hand out by making it 12,000 from under the gun. Dylan Horton, David Chase, and Brandon Schaefer all opted to make the call.

With a {4-Hearts}{7-Spades}{k-Hearts} flop exposed in the middle we saw Schaefer open with a check, and Corson continuing for 31,000. Dylan quickly made the call and action was next on Chase, who raised and placed out a bet of 120,000. Schaefer then folded, Corson did the same, and finally Horton placed his cards in the muck as well.

What an incredible start to today's play!

We lost Jarred Solomon on the second hand played out at his table. He called a Brandon Schaefer's under the gun raise, and then bets of 47,000, 105,000, and 199,000 on each street.

The final board read {8-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{3-Hearts}[{q-Hearts}{k-Hearts} and Schaefer opened {3-Spades}{3-Diamonds} for set. Solomon said it was good and mucked, later saying he had ace-queen.

There will be a short break now as the players are moved to the secondary feature table in the Pavillion room.

Zachary Korik Eliminated in 12th Place ($17,544)

Posted 2012-06-08 GMT-6

After a series of raises Zachary Korik moved all in and was called by David Chase. Korik held {A-Spades}{k-Clubs} while his opponent, Chase had {Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades}. The dealer then spread a {5-Spades}{2-Spades}{8-Diamonds} flop, allowing Chase to maintain his lead.

A {4-Spades} on the turn gave Korik a flush draw, and a few more outs to snag the hand away from Chase. However those dreams were shattered when the {4-Diamonds} fell on the river. After stacks were measured out it was discovered that Chase had more chips and Korik was eliminated.
