Hand Reaches Showdown In Card Competition

Brad Rawiller raised to 150,000 and Brendan Edmonds called in the big blind.

The players checked the {10-Spades} {4-Hearts} {4-Clubs} {3-Diamonds} {4-Diamonds} board to the river where Edmonds bet 175,000. Rawiller called but mucked when he saw his opponent's {A-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds}.

Rawiller is very short once more.

Chip Counts:

Anthony Kingston -- 1,500,000
Jim Mastorakos -- 1,550,000
Trung Tuan -- 805,000
Glenn Croft -- 1,850,000
Brendan Edmonds -- 950,000
Aaron Wilt -- 930,000
Brad Rawiller -- 790,000
Brent Thomas -- 800,000
Matthew Ephraums -- 2,150,000

Ephraums Chips Up

Brendan Edmonds raised preflop to 100,000 before Matthew Ephraums reraised to 250,000. Edmonds called, then check-mucked Ephraums' bet of 350,000 on the flop of {5-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{7-Hearts}.

How exciting!

Crafty Croft Ships a Pot

Trung Tran raised to 100,000 preflop from early position before Glenn Croft reraised to 175,000. Tran called and they went heads-up to a flop of {q-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}.

Tran check-called Croft's bet of 175,000 and the dealer produced the {k-Hearts} on the turn; Tran checked, but folded after Croft fired out 300,000.

It was a valuable pot for Croft, who is now on 2,000,000 after that hand. Tran is now down to 890,000.

Back In Brad!

Brad Rawiller is mounting something of a recovery at the moment having come to the final as the short stack.

He pushed twice over raises from Ephraums and Wilt, but not received a caller. He's now got about 850,000.


Anthony Kingston raised to 105,000 from middle postion but Trung Tran made it 255,000 from the button. Kingston called and they saw a raggy {2-Hearts} {6-Clubs} {2-Diamonds} flop.

Kingston checked and Tran moved all-in, that was enough and Kingston folded.

Masterakos Chips Up

The action folded around to Brendan Edmonds who raised to 75,000; Aaron Wilt called and Jim Mastorakos called from the small blind to go three ways into a flop of {2-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{9-Diamonds}.

Mastorakos and Edmonds checked to Wilt who opened for 175,000. Mastorakos called, Edmond folded and the dealer produced the {2-Clubs} on the turn, which Mastorakos and Wilt checked.

Mastorakos then led out for 240,000 on the river {7-Clubs}, forcing Wilt to send his hand into the muck.

Mastorakos is now on 1,458,000 after that hand. Wilt slips back to 880,000.

Thomas Takes One Down

Aaron Wilt raised to 80,000 but small blind Brent Thomas reraised to 165,000. Wilt made the call but then folded to Thomas' 537,000 all-in on the {A-Clubs} {Q-Clubs} {7-Spades} flop.
