Slippery Slope

It's been a slippery slope for former chip leader Maxwell Troy since the start of this final table. He's down to 460,000 after losing two pots in quick succession, one of which was against Karina Jett who now has close to one million in chips.

The Railers Return

Kristy Gazes is back at the rail, delighted that Karina Jett is in the lead. She's brought a bunch of friends with her this time, and the chants of, "Go KJ! Go KJ!" are now being alternated with that "OOH-ah OOH-ah" thing that most of us haven't heard since the '90s.

Bascom Goes All In, Makes It Out Again Intact

David Warga: {a-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} / {2-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} / {9-Clubs}
Karina Jett: (XX) / {q-Hearts} - fold
Jonathan Bascom: {a-Spades}{a-Hearts} / {8-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{5-Spades} / {10-Spades}

David Warga made the bring in and Karina Jett completed. Over to the short-stacked Jonathan Bascom, who raised - and back to Warga, who reraised. Jett got out of their way and Bascom capped; Warga made the call and they received another card.

Bascom was first to act on fourth street and following another brief raising war he was all in. They turned their cards up, and the dealer kept going.

By the end of the hand, Warga's low had come in and Bascom's aces had held up to chop the pot. Bascom is no longer the short stack, though - Chris Tryba had to bring in a couple times and folded to a completion every time, pushing his stack down to around 100,000, a little less than Bascom's stack.

Chop It Up

Chris Tryba: {8-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}/{2-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}
David Warga: {Q-Spades}{7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}/{A-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}

Tryba brought in, Karina Jett completed, Warga raised and both players called. Warga bet fourth street; just Jett called. Both players checked on fifth, only for Tryba to call a bet on sixth. Check, check on seventh. Chop it up.

Jett Rockets Ahead

Wow, it seems as though Karina Jett had some poker juice with her dinner - right now, she seems unstoppable.

Most recently we saw her complete and then call a raise from David Levi. Levi check-called all the way down to seventh street, when Jett revealed an ace-high flush. Levi couldn't beat it and Jett scooped the whole lot.

On around 820,000, Jett is now our chip leader. Levi dropped to 280,000, to the consternation of the Israeli element at the rail who, we suspect, think that no-one else can understand what they are saying.

Jett: {5-Clubs}{6-Clubs}(X) / {5-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{a-Clubs}
Levi: (XXX) / {3-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{a-Hearts}

Allen Bari Eliminated in 8th Place ($17,274)

Allen Bari
Allen Bari

Just a few hands in, Allen Bari became the first casualty of the final when he felt the wrath of Karina Jett. After Bari had completed, Jett raised it up and Bari called. Bari called a bet on fourth, but then led on fifth, before calling the final two streets.

On seventh, he had just 15,000 left, but deduced that he was too far in to fold. "You go it," he sighed as the hands were revealed.

Bari: {6-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{2-Clubs}/{8-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{9-Clubs}
Jett: {8-Spades}{A-Spades}{2-Hearts}/{3-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{10-Spades}{9-Diamonds}

Jett Power

Karina Jett: {9-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{3-Spades} / {a-Spades}{k-Spades}{q-Clubs}{k-Clubs}
David Levi: (mucked) / {6-Hearts}{9-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}

David Warga brought in with the {2-Hearts} and Karina Jett completed. David Levi called, and once Warga folded they were heads up to fourth street.

Jett bet out on every subsequent street and Levi called her all the way down before both checked on seventh. Jett tabled nothing but the pair of kings, and Levi mucked.
