McMurphy Gone

Kyle McMurphy was all in preflop holding pocket threes. His opponent was Nicolas Faure who held two sevens. McMurphy failed to improve and was sent to the rail. Faure moved up to 24,000.

Very Nice Chap

Double up for Fred Chaptini, he pushed against James Obst's raise with {A-Clubs} {K-Hearts} and binked the river against {10-Spades} {10-Diamonds} on a {6-Hearts} {3-Hearts} {2-Hearts} {9-Diamonds} {K-Spades} board.

Chaptini is up to 14,000. Obst still has over 100,000.

Channing Gets Obstinate-d

Just before the break, the biggest hand of the tournament occured.

James Obst opened for 800 in middle position, Barney Boatman made the call on the button before Neil Channing reraised to 3,200 from the button.

Obst then reraised to 6,900 and Boatman folded, Channing though wanted a count on the young internet player's stack before moving all-in.

Obst instantly called with {A-Spades} {A-Hearts} dominating Channing's {A-Diamonds} {K-Hearts} and holding on a {Q-Diamonds} {7-Spades} {8-Diamonds} {9-Hearts} {9-Spades} board. Obst is up to 115,000 and Channing is left with 27,000.

Barny Boatman told our reporter he folded Tens and was glad to get out of the hand when he did.

Chop It Up

Robert Damelian raised to 1,200 and Keith Hawkins reraised to 3,200. Damelian made the call.

The flop came down {A-Hearts} {3-Hearts} {2-Clubs} and Damelian bet 5,000. Hawkins raised to 13,000 and then Damelian moved all in. Hawkins made the call.

Hawkins: {A-Clubs} {K-Hearts}
Damelian: {A-Spades} {K-Clubs}

The turn was the {5-Spades} and the river the {6-Diamonds}. The two players chopped up the pot and Damelian stayed alive.

The river was the {9-Diamonds} and Colman checked out of turn, Channing then moved all-in for almost 40,000. Colman then called all-in for slightly less than 20,000.

Channing flipped {A-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds} for the backdoored nuts and Colman mucked and hit the rail.

Delaney Eliminated

Delaney Knocked Down

Nicolas Faure limped from the cutoff and Ben Delaney moved all in for 9,000. Faure called with {K-Clubs} {6-Clubs}. He only had about 5,000 chips. Delaney held {A-Clubs} {5-Spades}.

The board ran out {K-Hearts} {7-Diamonds} {3-Spades} {4-Spades} {J-Clubs} and Faure doubled. Delaney was knocked down to 3,500.
