A ton happened in the last few hands and here's what we were able to grab:
Over at Table 19 a player raised to 1,375 in early position and the action folded to a player in the small blind who moved all in for 6,825. Craig Marquis isolated from the big blind and the original raiser folded.
The dealer dealt three cards face down and when he went to fan them only the and the opened. Hiding under one of them was the which, after a moment, the dealer was able to expose. Marquis didn't receive any more help from the turn () or river () and was crippled down to 4,000 or so.
"I think I'm going to play the $2,500 six-max tomorrow," Marquis joked.
Just as he said that a tournament director informed the players that we will be playing one more hand. Marquis was elated.
The dealer shuffled the cards and spun them to the nine players left to right. Action folded to a player in late position who raised to 1,500. Eric "EFro" Froehlich re-raised to 4,500 on the button and Marquis called all in blind from the blinds. The original raiser folded and EFro tabled . Marquis turned over and the table erupted.
"Let's chop," Froehlich joked.
A chop would have been in his favor, because after the dealer wrapped the table he delivered the flop with the in the window followed by . Froehlich couldn't find a king on the turn or river and Marquis doubled to 9,025 to end the night. Froehlich still finished strong with 47,325.
A few tables over at Table 23 Tom "durrrr" Dwan had an opponent at risk holding . His opponent was racing with but was counterfeited and eliminated when the board ran . Dwan ended the night with 37,525.
Still there was more action in the last couple of hands, but unfortunately we missed it.
While rushing around to grab end of the night counts (coming soon) we noticed that Seats 5 and 6 were empty on Table 25. Evidently both Paul Wasicka and Brandon Cantu bowed out during the last few hands.
We bet you'll see them tomorrow in the $2,500 six-max.
