We have just lost our first player since getting back from the break. It is Ricky Crandell who find himself on the rail just shy of a final table.

Crandell's final hand of the day saw him all-in holding {8-Spades}{8-Hearts} against David Pham's {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}. The {10-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{k-Hearts} board saw Pham's hand stay in front as Crandell made hi way to the exit with $34,927 for his time.

Hinkle and Crandell Shoving

Ricky Crandell and Blair Hinkle have both simultaneously open shoved their stacks on their corresponding tables. No player wanted to rumble though as they both took down the blinds and antes.

Pham On the Up

Posted 2012-06-22 GMT-6

When we arrived at the table there was a {10-Spades}{8-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} flop showing and David Pham was busy leading out with a bet of 125,000 into Tyler Patterson. A call and both players would check the {5-Hearts} turn. On the {6-Diamonds} river, Pham again led, this time for 235,000. Patterson made the call, then sent his cards into the muck when Pham tabled {9-Spades}{6-Spades}.

Nguyen Cruising

Posted 2012-06-22 GMT-6

Dung Nguyen has been doing very well of late, managing to eliminate Miguel Proulx just prior to the break and now he has taken down even more chips.

Nguyen, Kristijonas Andrulis and Blair Hinkle all took to a {5-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{8-Hearts} flop. Nguyen checked, as did Andrulis and then Hinkle bet 88,000. Nguyen called and Andrulis got out of the way as a {2-Hearts} hit turn. Both players checked here and a {j-Spades} was the last card dealt on the board. Nguyen opted to again check here and then called the bet of 115,000 from Hinkle.

When Hinkle tabled his {9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}, they went into the muck as Nguyen turned over {j-Hearts}{9-Spades}.
