Camel Spitting

Keith "The Camel" Hawkins is out after calling James Obst all the way down on a {K-Diamonds} {K-Hearts} {8-Hearts} {8-Spades} {Q-Spades} board only to be shown {K-Spades} {Q-Hearts}.

His last few chips went all-in with {A-Hearts} {2-Clubs} but ran into Nicolas Faure's {A-Clubs} {A-Spades} with an unhelpful {4-Diamonds} {3-Diamonds} {6-Hearts} {J-Hearts} {10-Hearts} board being dealt out.

Channing is Chanout

Neil Channing pushed on the small blind for his last 8,000. Manny Stavropoulos made the call with {A-Spades} {3-Hearts}, ahead of Channing's {8-Clubs} {7-Clubs} both before and after the {2-Clubs} {K-Diamonds} {4-Diamonds} {K-Hearts} {4-Hearts} board.

Stavropoulos Shoves On Myung

John Myung raised to 2,100 and Manny Stavropoulos made the call from the small blind. Myung was in the hijack seat.

The flop came down {J-Spades} {8-Clubs} {5-Hearts} and Stavropoulos checked. Myung bet 2,600 and then Stavropoulos raised all in for 17,000. Myung mucked his hand, leaving himself with 11,400 chips.

Nathan Busts

Rayan Nathan moved all in preflop for 7,300 and Jonathan Karamalikis made the call.

Karamalikis: {A-Clubs} {10-Clubs}
Nathan: {K-Diamonds} {J-Spades}

The board ran out {A-Diamonds} {9-Spades} {4-Clubs} {10-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds} and that was the end of the line for Nathan. He was sent home while Karamalikis moved up to 41,000.

Obst Rolin' Now

James Obst, Jonathan Karamalikis, Neil Channing and Rayan Nathan all saw a flop of {10-Spades} {9-Diamonds} {7-Spades}. Nathan checked, Obst bet 2,600, Karamalikis called and Channing called. Nathan folded.

The turn was the {9-Spades} and all three remaining players checked. The river card completed the board with the {9-Clubs} and Obst fired 4,500. Karamalikis folded and Channing called.

Obst showed {A-Diamonds} {A-Clubs} and won the pot with Channing mucking. Obst is now on 120,000 chips and leading the field.
