Samuel Golbuff Eliminated in 10th Place ($15,830)

Samuel Golbuff - 10th Place
Samuel Golbuff - 10th Place

Just a few hands into the unofficial final table and we have lost our 10th-place finisher. The player was Samuel Golbuff and his last hand played out like so.

Golbuff opened it up from middle position and Andrew Prock three-bet. Nicholas Derke then four-bet on the button and Golbuff made it one more bet to go. Prock made the call and so did Derke.

Flop: {10-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{5-Spades}

On the flop, Golbuff flicked in his last 3,000 and his two opponents called as a {7-Hearts} hit the turn. Golbuff watched on as Prock fired out a bet. Derke called and a {6-Hearts} hit the river. Prock again flicked in a bet and this time Derke folded.

Golbuff tabled his {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}, but it wasn't strong enough for the {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} that Prock held. With that, we are down to nine and our final table is set.

Matt Szymaszek -11th Place

Matt Szymaszek's elimination has seen just 10 players remain and the action move to the unofficial final table. Szymaszek's last hand saw him all in for his short-stack preflop holding {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}. Unfortunately for Szymaszek he was up against Raymond Dehkharghani's {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}.

The board was spread out looking like this, {10-Hearts}{3-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{6-Spades}, with no miracle card for Szymaszek as he goes home in 11th place.

Szymaszek Left Crippled

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6

Matt Szymaszek was busy almost busting Raymond Dehkharghani and found himself left crippled. The hand in question saw Dehkharghani in the cut-off seat and Raymond Dehkharghani in the big blind. They took to a {9-Clubs}{k-Spades}{9-Diamonds} flop and put four bets in before a {10-Clubs} turn was dealt. This time Syzmaszek bet and Dehkharghani re-raised, Dehkharghani then called all in and two players turned their hands over.

Dehkharghani's {k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} was in front of Szymaszek's {q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} and the river changed nothing as Szymaszek was left crippled.

Matt Szymaszek 48,000 -133,000 neg

Glantz Wins Some

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6

Matthew Woodward opened from the under the gun and Matt Glantz promptly three-bet on the button. Woodward made the call and a {j-Spades}{9-Clubs}{5-Hearts} flop was dealt. Woodward checked and then raised the bet of Glantz. A call from Glantz and the two players would check it down on the turn ({2-Spades}) and the river ({3-Spades}).

Glantz's {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts} was strong enough to prevail over Woodward's {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}.

Terrence Chan Eliminated in 12th Place ($15,830)

Terrence Chan - 12th Place
Terrence Chan - 12th Place

Terrence Chan will have to be content with six cashes and no final tables here at the 2012 World Series of Poker, because he has just been eliminated. It took two hands to end Chan's tournament.

The first saw Matthew Woodward open the button. Chan then three-bet in the small blind before it was four bets from Ayman Qutami in the big blind. Back on Woodward and he put in another raise. Chan called all the bets and Quatmi also flicked in a call as a flop {8-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}. Chan then folded to heat on this flop, leaving himself with just over 30,000.

The last hand of Chan's tournament saw Chan raise from the button and then get the remainder of his chips in when Qutami three-bet out of the small blind. Chan tabled his {9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} and Quatmi his {a-Diamonds}{3-Spades}. The {5-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{5-Spades}{2-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} board was no help to Chan as he was eliminated in 12th place.
