Huu Vinh was just eliminated in fifth place at the hands of Andy Bloch. He took home $26,813 for his finish.

Bloch: {x-}{x-} / {K-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{3-Hearts} / {x-}
Vinh: {x-}{x-} / {J-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{7-Spades} / {x-}

Vinh completed the bet on third and Bloch raised. Vinh called and then called a bet from Bloch on fourth. On fifth street, Bloch bet and Vinh raised. Bloch paused.

"How much do you have behind?" Bloch asked Vinh.

Vinh spread his hands so Bloch could see and said, "Send me home, I'm ready to go home." He had 51,000 behind.

Bloch took another minute to think, then fired back with a reraise. Vinh reraised and Bloch just called. On sixth street, Vinh picked up a pair of sevens and bet his last 11,000. Bloch called.

"I have three pair," said Vinh as he showed the {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs} from the hole. Bloch held the {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs} in the hole.

On seventh street, Bloch pulled the {K-Diamonds} and that gave him aces and kings. Vinh now needed to improve to stay alive with a queen, jack or seven. He pulled the {2-Clubs}, though, and was eliminated in fifth place.

Williams Continues to Plummet

Posted 2012-06-02 GMT-6

Barry Greenstein brought it in with the {3-Hearts}, and David Williams raised with the {k-Spades}. Huu Vinh called, and Greenstein released.

Williams led on fourth street, and Vinh called. Vinh paired on fifth, led out, and Williams called. Vinh led again on sixth street, Williams called, and then both players checked on seventh.

Williams {x-}{x-} / {k-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{8-Clubs} / {x-}
Vinh {x-}{x-} / {6-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} / {x-}

Williams flashed the {k-Hearts}, but Vinh tabled {8-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{6-Hearts} for two pair. Williams mucked, and Vinh pulled in the pot.

A few hands later, Stephen Su brought in with the {7-Hearts}, Andy Bloch completed with the {8-Diamonds}, and Williams called with the {k-Diamonds}. Su folded.

Williams led out on fourth, Bloch called, and Bloch paired on fifth. He led out, and Williams quickly folded.
