Lehmanski Takes It On Turn

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6

Maximilian Lehmanski raised to 60,000 in middle position and Tom Chambers defended his big blind.

The flop came down {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and Chambers led out for 100,000. A call from Lehmanski landed the {J-Spades} turn. Chambers checked it to Lehmanski who took down the pot with a bet of 135,000.

One For Phillips

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6

Huy Quach opened to 75,000 in middle position and Carter Phillips three-bet to 180,000 from the cutoff. Action folded back to Quach who called, landing a {K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{4-Spades} flop. Both checked and did the same through the {J-Spades} turn and {2-Clubs} river.

Quach tabled {3-Clubs}{3-Hearts}, but that was second best to Phillips' {Q-Clubs}{5-Clubs} for a pair of queens.

Dwyte Pilgrim Eliminated in 11th Place ($38,214)

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6
Dwyte Pilgrim - 11th Place
Dwyte Pilgrim - 11th Place

We caught Huy Quach raise before the blind only to have Dwyte Pilgrim three-bet. Quach moved all in for around 700,000 and Pilgrim called.

Pilgrim: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}
Quach: {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}

The flop was a heartbreaking one for Pilgrim, as it gave Quach a set when it fell {K-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{2-Hearts}. The {4-Diamonds} fell on fourth and Pilgrim was looking for one of the two remaining queens to win the hand.

The {J-Spades} on the river was of no help and Pilgrim was crippled.

Pilgrim moved in soon after for 275,000 with {A-Clubs}{k-Hearts} against Michael Aron's pocket fours. Aron also flopped a set on Pilgrim and he was sent home in 11th place, just one spot shy of the unofficial final table.

Cada Back In It

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6

Najib Kamand opened to 70,000 from the cutoff and action folded to Joe Cada's big blind. Cada peeked at his cards and then shipped his entire stack in for about 300,000. Kamand called and the hands were turned up:

Kamand: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}
Cada: {5-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}

Cada grabbed hold of the lead hard on the flop of {J-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{5-Spades} by flopping a set of fives. The {5-Clubs} then rolled off on the turn, giving Cada quad fives and a double up.

The meaningless {10-Spades} completed the board on the river and Cada grabbed a nice sized pot.

Pilgrim Gets a Double Through Aron

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6

Action folded to Dwyte Pilgrim in the cutoff who tossed out 65,000. Michael Aron announced all in from the big blind and Pilgrim called off his last 505,000.

Pilgrim: {A-Spades}{J-Clubs}
Aron: {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

Aron kept his lead on the flop of {6-Spades}{4-Hearts}{K-Spades} flop but Pilgrim turned the {J-Spades}, pairing his jack and putting him in the lead. The river was the {2-Hearts} and Pilgrim was able to score a double.

Michael Aron 1,118,000 -612,000 neg
Dwyte Pilgrim 1,050,000 590,000 pos
